Assign a User Alias in the User Dashboard

A logon alias allows users to authenticate with their SecurID token using User IDs other than their own.

Before you begin

Before you assign a user alias, your Super Admin should have done the following:

  • Included a restricted or unrestricted agent in your deployment.
  • If you plan to configure a logon alias, the user must belong to a user group that has access to a restricted agent or has been enabled on an unrestricted agent.


  1. In the Security Console, go to the Home page.
  1. Use Quick Search to find the user.
  1. Select the user to which you want to assign an alias.
  1. Under User Profile, click Authentication Settings.
  1. Under Authentication Settings, select whether you want to allow users to use their own User IDs or an alias.
  1. Select the user group to which you want to assign the alias.
  1. In the User ID field, enter the User ID that you want to assign to the alias.
  1. In the Shell field, enter the shell that you want assigned to the alias.
  1. If your deployment uses RADIUS, from the RADIUS Profile drop-down menu, select the RADIUS profile to assign to the alias.
  1. Click Add.
  1. Click Save.
