Manage groups and users in Lizmap Web Client
The groups and users: principles
As an administrator, you can:
create, rename, delete user groups
create, modify, delete users
linking a user to one or more groups
Rights on Lizmap Web Client repositories are managed at group level, not at the user level.
Manage Groups: create, rename, delete
Create a group: In the left menu click on Groups of users for rights and scroll down to Create a group.
Define the label: it is possible to use spaces and accents
Define the ident: one word without special characters
In the page Groups of users for rights, it is also possible to Change the name and Delete a group.
The users group is a group system to give the rights to authenticated users to edit their own user information including passwords. We excluded this group of Lizmap Web Client configuration because all identified users must be part of this group.
Create a user : In the left menu click on Users and click on the button Create a new user:
give a Nickname which will be used for the login
give an email
set name and firstname
The user will have an email for setting up his password. If you want to set the password yourself, read the section below.
It is also possible to view and edit informations about users.
Once users created, you must put them into groups to assign the associated rights.
Setting password for users
By default, in Lizmap, when a new user is created, the user will get an email for setting up his own password.
If for some reasons, the administrator needs to setup the password, the
localconfig.ini.php needs to be edited:
[jcommunity] resetAdminPasswordEnabled = off
Putting users in groups
In the left menu click on Rights of users
it is possible to filter the visible users with the dropdown menu
to put a user in groups, click on the its button rights
The page displays a table with rights online and groups on column
The last column shows the resulting rights
In the head row, the + and - buttons allow to set / remove the user from a group
Do not use the Personal rights column.
