Creating a Local Authentication User

Creating a Local Authentication User

This section describes how to create a local user. For applications that use local authentication, local user accounts are used to access a share.


  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Provisioning > User Authentication.
  3. Click Local Authentication User tab.
  4. Click Create.

    The Local Authentication User dialog box is displayed.

  5. In Username, enter a new user name.

    The user name:
    • Cannot contain space, double quotation mark ("), slash (/), backslash (\), square brackets ([]), less than (<), larger than (>), plus (+), colon (:), semicolon (;), comma (,), question mark (?), asterisk (*), vertical bar (|), equal mark (=), (@), or end with a period (.).
    • The user name can contain case-insensitive letters. Therefore, aaaaaaaa and AAAAAAAA cannot be created at the same time.
    • The user name cannot be the same as the name of the local authentication user group.
    • Contains 8 to 32 characters by default.

      You can modify the minimum length of user name in More > Set Security Policies.

  6. In Password, enter the password of the user.

    The system default password requirements are:
    • Contain 8 to 16 characters.
    • Contain special characters. Special characters include: !"#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[\]^`{_|}~ and space.
    • Contain any two types of the uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and digits.
    • Cannot contain three consecutive same characters.
    • Be different from the user name or the user name typed backwards.

    Click More and choose Set Security Policies to set a security policy for the password of the local authentication user in the file system. If Password Validity Period (days) is not selected, your password will never expire. For the security purpose, you are advised to select Password Validity Period (days) and set a validity period. The default validity period is 90 days. After the password expires, you cannot access shares, but you can set a password again and modify the password security policy.

  7. In Confirm Password, enter the new password again.
  8. Select Primary Group.

    The Select Primary Group dialog box is displayed.


    The primary group to which users belong controls the users' permission for CIFS shares. A user must and can only belong to one primary group.

  9. Select the user group to which the user belongs to and click OK.
  10. (Optional) Select Secondary Group.

    The Select Secondary Group dialog box is displayed.

    The concepts of primary group and secondary group are for local authentication users and have no relationship with each other. A local authentication user must belong to a primary group but not to a secondary group.

  11. Click Add.

    The Select User Group dialog box is displayed.

  12. Select one or multiple groups which the user belongs to and click OK.

    The system goes back to Select Secondary Group dialog box.

  13. Click OK.

    The system goes back to Local Authentication User dialog box.

  14. Optional: In Description text box, enter the description for the local authentication user, for later management or search.
  15. Click OK.
  16. In the Success dialog box that is displayed, click OK.
