  • Create new user
  • Username and Email are required data entry fields. Attempts to save without these fields filled-in results in red validation warning "required" and record cannot be saved.
  • New user does not require password and confirmation password in order to save new user record.
  • Default behaviour is to make new user Active.
  • To make a user inactive, deselect Active box. Save user and ICA-AtoM returns red warning "This user is inactive."
  • If password is created and confirmation password does not match. ICA-AtoM generates a red validation warning: "Your password confirmation did not match you password."
  • Will not save new user if mismatched.
  • Create matching password and confirmation and ICA-AtoM responds with "Password match: Yes" and provides a password strength indicator bar
  • Save user (create)
  • OR, Cancel (do not save new user) and AtoM returns you to the "List users" screen
  • If saved, User can login with email/password


  • "List users" screen has two tabs - Show active only and Show inactive only
  • Active users are shown under the corresponding tab
  • Inactive users are shown under the corresponding tab
  • Display correct user data after creation (including groups, permissions)
  • Display correct user data after edit (including groups, permissions)
  • "my profile" link (upper right of screen in Caribou) shows current user's account
  • "my profile" link (upper right of screen in Trillium has a "Quick links" drop-down, it is listed below) shows current user's account
  • Non admin user can't see other user's account - "Sorry you do not have permission to access that page"


  • Edit user data
  • Update/change password
  • Validation: mismatched password and confirm password

  • Once deleted, a user can't login anymore
