2.5. Creating users

To start adding new users, you will need to run the add-user.sh script on a Unix system or the add-user.bat file on a Windows system from the EAP bin directory.
  1. Run ./add-user.sh on a Unix system or add-user.bat on a Windows system from the bin directory.
  2. Enter b to select an Application User at the type of user prompt and press Enter.
  3. Accept the default Realm (ApplicationRealm): by pressing Enter.
  4. At the username prompt, enter a user name and confirm. For example: helloworlduser.

    Note

    Make sure that the usernames don't conflict with any known groups. For example, if there is a group called admin, you should not create a user with the username admin.
  5. Create the user's password at the password prompt and reenter the password. For example: Helloworld@123.

    Note

    The password should be at least 8 characters in length and should contain upper and lower case alphabetic characters (e.g. A-Z, a-z), at least one numerical character (e.g. 0-9) and at least one special character (e.g. ~ ! @ # $ % ^ * ( ) - _ + =).
  6. Enter a comma separate list of roles the user will need at the roles prompt (refer to Section 2.4, “Defining Roles”).
    Business Central users need to have the analyst or the admin role.
  7. Confirm you want to add the user.
  8. Enter yes at the next prompt (this is to enable clustering in the future if required).
