Edit user advanced
To disable this option for standard users:
If you are only managing users in one tenant, or you log in to multiple tenants separately, the platform displays your users and the user management options.
Before you begin:
The enterprise that the user will belong to.
The user's first name and family name
|Scope||The Scope of a user defining the set of enterprise and datacenters that they can manage on the platform|
The username for login. After you create the user, you cannot change the username
The user account password. Requirements are set by the options of Configuration → Security. See also Manually reset a user password
Re-enter the password
The contact e-mail address of the user for platform messages, including password reset. The platform will display a Gravatar icon associated with this address on the Users's card
|Phone||The phone number of the user. The platform will not validate this field.|
By default, all users can access all virtual datacenters. When you create a user, you can restrict them to a set of virtual datacenter if they do not have the No VDC restriction privilege.
To restrict a user to a set of virtual datacenters:
Optional description of the user account, maximum 100 characters
|Public key||SSH key for secure access to VMs. Add this key before you create your VMs. See How to work with SSH keys.|
|Reset password on next login|
If this checkbox is selected, the user must reset their password the next time they log in.
|Allowed CIDRs||By default users can access the platform from any IP address. To restrict user access, enter the allowed network addresses in CIDR format. Requires the Manage user allowed CIDRs privilege.|
If this checkbox is selected, the user account is active and the user can log in.
If you need to stop a user from working with or logging in to the platform on a temporary basis, you can suspend the user account.
To suspend a user account:
The platform will suspend the account. When a user account is suspended, the platform will log the user out immediately. Be careful not to disable your own account! Fortunately, the main cloud administrator account cannot be disabled.
To enable the user account again, select the Activated checkbox.
If the user makes too many failed login attempts, the platform will automatically suspend their account for the account lock duration or until it is enabled by an administrator.
If a user cannot automatically reset their password or if the user account is locked for too many password attempts, you can manually reset the password and unlock the account.
To manually reset a user password:
The user password will be reset. Notify the user of their new password.
If you manage users in multiple tenants, to move a user to another tenant:
Note that you cannot edit the user to change the user's enterprise.

The enterprise manager user will receive notification emails from the cloud administrators about physical machines and their enterprise's VMs on the platform.
To make a user an enterprise manager:
You cannot delete the default Cloud Administrator (username: admin) because the role is locked, unless you are another user with the same locked role (CLOUD_ADMIN). However, there must always be at least one user with this role.
Note: If you wish to delete a tenant, you do not need to delete the users manually first. When you delete an enterprise, the platform will automatically delete all tenant administrators and cloud users in the enterprise.
Abiquo will delete the user account but the user's VMs and other resources will remain on the cloud platform and users in the same enterprise with the appropriate permissions can work with them.
To restrict user access to the platform via console and API:
