Only the administrator, the system administrators and the group administrators have access to user management. The web page is available by clicking on the Administration / Users submenu.
Creating a user
You can create new Verba users by clicking on the Add New User link on the Users \ Users page. After selecting the link, the following page is opened.
Step 1 - Provide the Display Name. This can be anything, but it should represent the user's real name.
Step 2 - Provide the Login ID. The user will use this ID when logging into Verba. This should be the same as the user's Windows domain user ID (without the domain part).
Step 3 - Provide a password in the Password and the Confirm Password fields. This will be only a local Verba password, which is used in the case of Verba password-based authentication, therefore it doesn't have to match with the AD user password.
Step 4 (Optional - SfB / Lync and Cisco only) - Provide the announcement, role, and other settings. For more information, see: User Configuration
Step 5 - Click Save.
The following table describes the available fields:
Full name of the user.
Minimum length: 3
Maximum length: 64
Login name of the user. Used during the authentication and in Cisco IP Phone XML service as a key parameter.

Start date of the validation for the user. It can be configured for later or previous dates. This field is checked when a call record is inserted and the system tries to associate the call to a user through extension mapping. If a call with a phone number, which is mapped to a user, is recorded, but the Valid From date is later than the start date of the call, the call will not be associated to the user.
End date of the validation for the user. It can be configured for later or previous dates. This field is checked when a call record is inserted and the system tries to associate the call to a user through extension mapping. If a call with a phone number, which is mapped to a user, is recorded, but the Valid To date is earlier than the start date of the call, the call will not be associated to the user.
Invalid or expired users are unable to login to the system.
If the user never expires, the field is blank.
Click on the Never expires link to invalidate the expiration of the user.

Modifying and invalidating users
To edit user data, you have to click on the desired row of the table showing registered Verba users.
For the changes to take effect, press the Save button. All conditions, which are described in the previous section, have to be met.
You can invalidate a user by pressing the Invalidate button. The system does not delete the user record from the database it simply invalidates the user so functions/calls are not "lost", e.g. searching back for the user in the Users Call list is available, the name of the user is displayed in the call lists. Invalidating the user will disable the user login by setting the Valid To field to the current date and time. Invalidated users have * symbol next to their name.
If you are unable to see your invalidated users then click on the Show Expired Users on the top right corner in the Users List view. You can hide your invalidated users by clicking on the Hide Expired Users on the top right corner in the Users List view.
To delete a user, click the Delete button.
