In order to create users and assign rights, you must be administrator of not only Devolutions Password Server, but also of the underlying database.

 

The User Management is available from Administration - Users within Remote Desktop Manager or on the toolbar of the Devolutions Password Server Console. User Management allows you to create and manage users and their permissions. Devolutions Password Server offers advanced user rights management that allows for restricting access to entries. Please note that some features availability depends on the active data source.
