Add ipMonitor user accounts

ipMonitor provides a detailed User Account system to control which features individual users can access. Each user account has its own list, read, write, create, delete and attributes settings, which administrators can apply to various features throughout the software. User accounts have permission levels that administrators can assign to different ipMonitor features and interfaces.

You can create administrator, user, and guest accounts in ipMonitor. All users must have an account to access the ipMonitor web interface.

If you need to delete an Administrator account, you must first demote the account to a regular or guest account.

The following table lists the privileges for User and Guest accounts.
