Unomaly lets you define user accounts and assign different roles to control the type of access that your users have to the data and analytics in the instance.

Account permissions

When creating user accounts on a Unomaly instance, administrators can define what data users can access by assigning them to Teams, which are restricted to systems or groups. This means that users will be able to see only systems and data relevant to the Teams they are in.

The default admin account

Every Unomaly instance has a default account with full privileges called “admin”.

The first time you log into the Unomaly web interface, use the default username and password: admin/unomaly .

  • (Recommended) After you log in for the first time, change the password to restrict access to this admin account.
  • (Recommended) Create an Administrator account for yourself, then log out and use your new account to continue you activities, such as creating other accounts or editing system settings.

If you need to recover a lost password for the admin account, contact Unomaly Support.

Capabilities and roles

Unomaly supports three roles: Administrator, Standard User, and Limited User. * Administrator has full permissions on the instance, including the capability to edit and remove systems, create user accounts, change backend settings, and so on. * Standard User has administrator capabilities, except for: adding, editing, removing user accounts, and making any changes to the instance. * Limited User provides access to view systems and learnings, without the capabilities to make any changes to the instance.

The following table compares the capabilities for each of the roles in more detail.

Note: Removing a system or group will make all the systems in it disappear, unless the user has administrator access.

“*” Indicates that these capabilities are restricted by the systems and groups that the user has access to.

Adding user accounts

In the Users & Teams settings,

  1. Select the Users tab.

  2. Enter the Username and Email address for the new user.

  3. Select the Role for the new user: Administrator, Standard User, Limited User.

  4. Select one or more Teams to add the user to. See “Teams and permissions”.

  5. Click Create user.

The new user will get an email notifying them of the account creation and providing a generated password to log in.

Editing user accounts

All users can change the email address and reset the password on their own accounts. Only accounts with the Administrator role have additional privileges to edit other user accounts: Administrators can edit the email address, reset the password, and change the Teams for other user accounts.

Configuring authentication for users

Each Unomaly instance and deployment has a default internal user database. By default, Unomaly uses this built-in user database to authenticate users. This database records the user, password, role, and metadata for each account. The password can be handled with an external authentication service to avoid having to manage multiple passwords.

Unomaly supports configuring multiple authentication providers, including:
