Each Security Analytics user must have a user account. In the Users tab, you can create, edit, delete, enable/disable and unlock a user account. 

To access this view, in the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Security. The Security view opens to the Users tab by default.



The Users tab consists of the User grid with a toolbar at the top. These are the toolbar features.
