In order to provide users access to a Filespace, administrators need to create individual users accounts. Each user will require their own username and password to link to a Filespace. 


Users form an important foundation for implementing Access Control Lists (ACL) via our Filespace Shares as a means for granting access to the Filespace and assigning, full, or limited read and or write access to its directory structure. 


A Filespace without any users can only be accessed from the root account. Management of your Users can be accessed via the LucidLink client dashboard users tab, providing your root password and opening the manager.

Add, delete and reset your user passwords from within our user manager.

Add a user.

Delete user or change user password.

Administration of users  can be also performed and scripted via the command line.
