He’ll also talk about the many hybrid approaches, so you can gradually move to the cloud. If you are interested in cost savings, additional features, ease of use, quick scaling, improved reliability, and ending the days of upgrading hardware, this is the session for you.

User accounts consist of three types of permissions:

  • Basic account permissions
  • View assignments
  • Application specific settings

Before you begin, consider what tasks the user must perform, and what views and menu bars are most suitable.

Users created using default settings can log in to the Orion Web Console and see information available in views, resources, and reports. For administration and customization tasks, users need extra rights.
