User creation

This guide shows you how to create a new user

Using web interface

Using web interface is the easiest way to create a user.

First, connect to the Cloud Disk Array manager. Under 'Platforms and services' select your Ceph cluster. On the bottom left, you will find the user list. No user is created by default (except admin that you can't use and that is hidden).

Ceph users

Enter a username.

Your username needs at least three characters.

Ceph user creation

After user creation, you are back to manager. You can see that cluster status has changed because the user is being created.

You can check user creation by listing users.
