The users menu shows you a list of all configured and available users.

Users are first of all local Scanshare users created to use the software, both administrators who can access the full configurations and regular users who can use user based functionalities, according the installed license.

After creating a user it can login from the Scanshare login page accessing the functionalities based on its role.

The users list shows also additional, not local created, users such as OAuth Users and External Authenticated Users.

Users can be put together in a Group which allows you to change settings for multiple users at once. Groups are displayed horizontal in a gray bar with an arrow to collapse them on the left side and group controls on the right side (Edit, Delete).


Deleting a group will delete all the users contained inside.

It is also possible to search through the users by using the search function on the upper right side.

The view of the table is very easy and intuitive:

The type of user identified by image.

The name of the user (assigned name at the time of the creation or retrieved name when automatically created).

A short distinguish description of the user.

The email address of the specific user, if defined.

The id associated with your user. It is unique and it is the id of your user inside the DB.

If the user is enabled or not. The status of new users is automatically set to true when a new user is created. In the users menu you can easily set this to false by clicking on the indicator. The user will then be grayed out, the indicator will be gray and set to off.
