Once clicked, this button will display the ‘New User’ configuration window:
There are three tabs within the ‘New User’ window:
User: Settings relating to the individual User, such as password, language and more.
Notifications: Covered in Section ‘4.11.2. Notification Methods’, the Notifications tab contains items required for enabled notification methods to work correctly. For example, if a User wants to receive an email he must specify his email address within the ‘Email:’ field in ‘Notifications’.
In this Guide we will be focusing solely on the ‘User’ tab.
The User tab contains seven required fields when creating a new User; these are:
Name: The full name / friendly, non-log in name for the User.
Username: The Username which the User will use to login to Opsview Monitor.
Comment: A small comment about the User, i.e. ‘This is John Smith; he is the Sysadmin for Tims Tyres’.
Role: The Role with which the User is associated. Note: Only one Role can be selected.
Set Password/Confirm Password: The password which the User must enter in order to log in.
Language: English/Spanish/German languages are available to Users of Opsview Monitor, along with the setting ‘Use browser setting’ which will try to discover the required language via the browser.
Tips: There are two checkboxes here; one enables/disables ‘Tips’ (the helpful guides on certain sections of Opsview Monitor), and the second resets Tips, where Opsview Monitor treats you as a new User and explains each section to you via Tips, as shown below:

The highlighted orange row indicates that a reload is required to apply the changes. Simply click on the correspondingly orange ‘Reload’ tile in Settings and the new User will be created:
