How to Add Users and User Groups

Through OpenEye Web Services, Users are never assigned permissions directly to their account. Instead, all OWS permissions are assigned to User Groups, to which a User can be added. Users in a User Group will have access to all permissions enabled in the User Group settings.
Adding New Users
  1. Users can be added from Management > User Management > Users.
