Human User

General Information About Human Users

A human user represents an actual person. The human user can be linked to an account. If this link exists other users from within this particular account can manage the corresponding user.

A human user can have roles. Each role grants different permissions to the user. As part of the PCI DSS we have to force the user to change the password every 90 days.

Roles and Human Users

Human users have roles. Each role grants different permissions to the user. When creating and assigning roles you have to keep in mind that each role is context specific. There are access rights that are bound to the context of a space or an account. You can assign the role only in such a context.

    A human user can have the following states:

    When the state is set to Inactive this user can’t act. However, all the information is not deleted and you can reactivate the user at any moment.


    The user is in the process of the deletion. This may take some time until the user is marked as Deleting before being marked as Deleted.


    The user is deleted. Since the user is linked with data which cannot be deleted immediately, we need to keep the user until all the data can be removed.
