If you are a portal builder, you can display, query, search, and edit the user accounts at the Explorer.
The Users have: name, domain, username, E-mail address, language, enabled status, etc.

Browsing the users

Using the Explorer

You can browse users at the Explorer. You can find the Domain at /Root/IMS directory, and you can find the users under the Domain.
At the Domain you can find Organizational Unit, or Users.

Advanced Explorer

Using the user browser view

The user browser view enables you to see information about the selected user.

User browser view

If you click to a user, you get a detailed page about its personal data. There you can see his/her avatar, full name, domain, user name, e-mail address, manager, title, phone number, department, spoken languages and description. If you click to the e-mail address, your default e-mail application opens a new blank mail with the user's address in the address field. The manager is clickable as well, it takes you to the manager's browsing view. Below there are some buttons which represent the available actions on the user. You can edit, delete, explore and check its version. Of course you have to have the appropriate authority to do these.

The browse view can be found in /Root/Global/contentviews/User/Browse.ascx. If you address a user with URL (for example, http://localhost/Root/IMS/BuiltIn/Portal/Administrator ), the portal redirects you to its browsing view. If you remove the Browse.ascx file from the User folder, the default view for the users will be the general contentview.

There are some fields which are compulsory to fill, these are marked with an asterisk. If you leave at least one of them empty, you cannot save the form.

At the bottom of the page you have three possibilities. Firstly, if you want to save your work and then stay in edit mode, click on the Save Draft button.

Setting permissions on a user

On the edit page you can also manage the membership of the current user in different user groups. After checking/unchecking the groups, you can apply your changes by clicking the Update memberships button.

Updating group memberships does not save the changes made on the user data and vice versa.
