20.3 Creating a New Local User

You can manually create users on the Vibe site, rather than synchronizing user information from an LDAP directory. Users created in this way are local users, and are not added to your LDAP directory. Local users are not authenticated through NetIQ Access Manager when Access Manager is fronting the Vibe system.

You can create local users from the Administration Console:

  1. Log in to the Vibe site as the Vibe administrator.

  2. Click your linked name in the upper right corner of the page, and then click the Administration Console icon .

  3. In the Management section, click Users.

  4. Click New.

    The User page is displayed.

  5. Provide the user’s information in the User page, then click OK.
