User Management

Previous  Index  Next  How To Use

The Firebird user manager is an easy to use tool. Simply double click the User Manager node in the Enterprise Manager and the User Manager will open - alternatively, use the context menu Administration & Maintenance | User Manager.


You should have registered the server with a valid SYSDBA password in order to create users. If you're using a Classic architecture Firebird, be sure to have entered the security database path ("isc4.gdb" for Firebird < 1.5) in order to view the users. When using Database Workbench with the Classic architecture, you cannot create or delete users.


The Firebird User Manager


Selecting a user and using the Edit User button will open the User Properties dialog.


The User Properties Dialog


If you create a new user, this dialog will appear as well - but empty of course.


If you're modifying a user, and you don't want to modify the password - be sure to NOT change the current value in the Password and Confirm edit boxes.


Exiting this dialog by using the OK button will save the user information.
