Quick User Guide
User Manager

1 Introduction
This document gives a short overview of the functionality of the UserManager for the ddRCompact
system. The UserManager can be used to create new user keys, to change your password, and to
view and change the details of existing user keys. The user keys can then be used to log in to eX-
pert™3000 and the corresponding tools.

2 Functionality

2.1 Login
You always need a user key to use the UserManager because you will always be prompted to
login using your own user key after starting the application. If you do not have a user key, please
contact your supervisor.

Figure 1: The login screen after starting the UserManager.

2.2 User Menu


The UserManager contains a menu which provides access to the typical actions:
• New… – Create a new user key.
• Open… – Open an existing user key.
• Save – Save the currently opened user key with the changes made to it.
• Save as… – Save the currently opened user key to a different location.
• Close – Close the currently opened user key without saving any changes.

• Logout – Logs you out of the UserManager and returns to the default login screen shown
in Figure 1.
• Exit – Closes the UserManager without saving any changes.

2.3 Your user key

2.3.1 View your user details


1) Login with your user key.
2) The details of your user key will be displayed automatically.

Note: All the details are read-only (except for the password). If you need your user details to be changed,
please contact your supervisor to do so.

2.3.2 Change your password

Figure 4: The “Change Password” section.


1) Login with your user key.
2) Enter the new password into both textboxes at the bottom.
3) Save your user key using the menu.

Note: Your password must have a minimum length of 3 characters.


Note: The small square next to the password textboxes indicates whether the entered passwords match and
the length of the password is sufficient.
Note: Since you cannot load your own user key using the menu (“User” Æ “Open…”), you have to change
the password right after you logged in when your user details are shown.

2.4 Other user keys

2.4.1 Create a new user key

Figure 5: Creating a new user key.


1) Choose “User” Æ “New…” from the menu.
2) Enter the user’s first and last name.
3) Enter the user’s company and department or choose them from the lists.
4) Choose the desired user level.
5) Save the user key using the menu.

6) The UserManager will automatically create a text file containing the personal information
and an initial password for the user key. The user can then change his password as de-
scribed in section 2.3.2 (soon also available in eXpert3000).

Note: You can only create user keys with a user level lower than your own level. For example, a ServiceUser
can only create user with the levels LocalUser or LocalAdmin.
Note: You can edit the default company and department names in the list (shown in Figure 6) by editing the
text files called “UserManagerCompanies.txt” and “UserManagerDepartments.txt” in the application’s folder.
Put each entry on a separate line.

2.4.2 View or edit an existing user key


1) Choose “User” Æ “Open…” from the menu.
2) Select the *.ukey file you want to view or edit.
3) Make the changes.
4) Save the user key using the menu.

Note: You can only load user keys with a user level lower than your own level. For example, a ServiceUser
can only load user keys with the levels LocalUser or LocalAdmin.
Note: You cannot change the password of a loaded user key! The password can only be changed by the
user himself after logging in (see section 2.3.2).
