Main menu -> User management -> Add new user
User attributes (a)
On this page you can modify the attributes of an existing user or
add a new user.
This is the name the user uses when he / she logs in to the
This is the password the user uses when he / she logs in to the
system. This setting is available on this page only when adding a new
user; later you can change the password through the user management
This is the user's password for second time. This is required in order
to eliminate spelling errors. This setting is also visible only when
adding a user.
This setting specifies the type of the user. Currently there are two
types of users: Normal users and Administrator users. Administrator
users can manage projects and users, update the system and do other
administrative tasks. Administrators also always have full access to
all projects. Normal users cannot access the Administrator tools and
they don't have any access to any project by default; all access
rights must be explicitly given.
Company / department
This is the company and / or department the user works for / in. Whether
this defines the company, the department or both depends on the
environment you're using Sirid in.
Street address, city and country specify the address information of
the user only partially but the full address information is rarely
required. If you want to specify the user's full address here, you can
write the user's zip code and state to the city field (e.g. Houston,
This setting specifies the language the user will be using Sirid in. All
pages are shown to the user using the selected language and emails
sent to the user will be in this language. An exception to the email
language is when the email has multiple recipients and some of them
have different language, in which case system default language will be
used to send the message.
You can specify zero or more (preferably at least one) email addresses
that will be used when sending messages to the user. The messages will be
sent only to the active email addresses.
You can also specify zero or more phone / mobile numbers. Because this
information is not directly used by the system but is instead only
provided for other users in order to contact you, you can,
disregarding the setting name, also specify the user's fax number here by
writing, for example 760-602-1774 (fax).
User global rights
These settings specify some global permissions and restictions for the
user. Administrator users are not tied by these rights; they are
always allowed to do everything.
Act as accountant: This setting allows the user to search time spent
by other users on the time tracking page. Accountant users are also
allowed to modify time related entries created by other users. You
generally want to give this right to payroll clerks or people dealing
Not a member of group 'All': This restiction prohibits the user
from seeing projects unless the user is explicitly granted an access
right to that project. More precisely, the user won't see projects
that contain access right for the "user" 'All'. You generally want to
use this option when you want to use the 'All'-access to allow all
employees of a company to access certain project but you don't want
"guest" users (customers, subcontractors, etc.) to see the project.
These options specify which user interface elements to show to the
user. Generally you want to show all user interface elements but if
your company doesn't for example want to use the bug-functionality in
Sirid at all, you can choose to hide the bug related elements from the
user interface too.
Note that this option is not related to the per
project access rights. Removing the user interface elements does not
prohibit the user from accessing the pages: If the user has "view bugs
"-access right for a certain project and he clicks the link to "view
bug"-page, provided in an email for example, he will be able to see
the bug details. In short, these settings only hide functionality,
don't prevent accessing it.
