User Management

The administrative portal provides several key functions related to the administration of users.

Reviewing User Accounts

To review user accounts, you can select the Security > Users option in the administration panel.

From this screen you can quickly:

  • Lock or unlock a user account which has been compromised

  • Reset a password for a user

  • Delete or un-delete a user account.

Creating / Editing User Accounts

To create a new user account, press the Create button, to edit an existing user account, press the Edit button beside the user you'd like to edit. You'll be presented with a user creation screen as illustrated below.

The user edit / creation screen is broken into four sections:

  • Core Properties: Which contains the core properties of the user account (creation/updated user, security ID, username, etc.)

  • Security Properties: Role membership, invalid login tracking, and password control.

  • Demographic Fields: Demographics related to the user who owns the account (name, organization, facility, etc.)

  • Version Information: Complete changelog of edits made to the user account.

Demographics Fields

Users in SanteDB have to profiles. The first profile is the SecurityUser, which are the attributes that the user uses for security reasons. The second profile is their UserEntity profile (and optionally Provider profile), which is a clinical representation of the user.

To imagine the difference, you can think of an e-mail address or telephone number attached to security user as being the address used by the system for things like TFA and password resets, however the e-mail on the clinical profile may be for clinical purposes like booking appointments, referrals, etc.

Version History

All clinical data (including Provider and UserEntity data) is versioned in SanteDB. This section of the screen shows a complete edit history of the clinical data, including which fields were changed, which user changed the fields, and which device/application was used to change the data.
