Creating a User

You create users to enable access to the software. When you create a user, you assign the user to a user group that has properties and security associations assigned to it.

Before You Begin

Create a user group.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Manage > Security.

    The Security page appears.

  2. Click the Users tile.

    The Users page appears.

  3. In the upper-right area of the page, click Add user.

    The Add user dialog box appears.

  4. Enter the user information.


    The user email address must be unique and not used by an existing user in the Commvault environment.

  5. To assign this user to a user group, from the User group list, select the user group.

  6. Decide how to create the password for the user:

    • To auto-generate a password for local users, select the Use system generated password check box.

    • To manually set a password for the user, in the Password box, enter a password.

  7. To send an email invitation to the user to install the Laptop package, select the Invite User check box.

    The Invite User option applies if this user's laptop or desktop must be backed up by the Laptop solution, and you want the user to interactively install the Laptop package. If an administrator will install the Laptop package, do not select the Invite User option.

  8. Click Save.
