Skyline is set up for Database authentication where User Names and Passwords are stored in the database SkylineMembership. Initially there will be no users on the system. Users can add themselves to this database if the option Registration - Show Register new user is enabled on the log in page or user accounts can be created by a Skyline administrator.

infoNotes:
If users log in using their corporate user name and password (LDAP authentication) they are automatically added the first time that they log in to Skyline.
When a user is created the password criteria are not applied so care must be taken that any password supplied do comply with your password rule. When the user changes their password the rules are applied to their entry.
It is recommended that the portal configuration Registration - New Users Must Be Approved is turned off if you are going to be adding a lot of users. If it is turned on you will have to activate each account after it has been approved.

When you have created a new user it will  be assigned the role of User. You can assign multiple roles to the user if they require access to specific features.
