5 Administering Users

This chapter describes how to administer users and mobile applications using the Mobile Manager. Topics include:

5.1 Overview

The installation option of Oracle Database Lite determines user administration methods that are available to a Mobile Server administrator. As an administrator, you can administer users while running the Mobile Server in Standalone Mode.

5.2 Standalone Mode

In standalone mode, all information relevant to group users and individual users such as user names and passwords, are extracted from the Users table in the Mobile Server Repository. In this mode, the Mobile Server conducts the authentication process.

The following sections discuss how to administer users in Standalone mode. Topics include:

5.2.1 Displaying User Groups and Individual Users

This section enables you to display existing user groups and individual users.

To display individual users, logon to the Mobile Manager and click the Mobile Manager link in the Workspace. As displayed in Figure 5-1, the Mobile Server Farms page appears.

5.2.2 Adding New Groups

As an administrator, you can add a new group that accesses the Mobile Server in Standalone mode. The Users table in the Mobile Server Repository contains information about new users.

To add a new group, navigate to the Users page and click Add Group. As Figure 5-3 displays, the Add Group page appears and lists the requisite criteria to register user group properties.
