To Create User
- Open Wasabi Management Console.
- In the left menu, select Users.
- Click Create User.
- Specify user name and access.
The following access options are available:
- Programmatic (required for Managed Backup)
Once the Programmatic check box is selected, a user receives an access key and secret key, which are used to access two resources: IAM and Storage via third-party means (AWS CLI, CloudBerry, Cyberduck or any other S3 application).
Once the Console check box is selected, you must specify a password that a user will use to sign in to Wasabi. As an option, you can select Require Password Reset check box which indicates a user must reset a password and change it to a custom one. In this case, a user will be prompted for a new password upon the first Wasabi sign-in.
