Configuring User Accounts (SRC CLI)


To configure a user account:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures a user account, and specify a username that identifies the user.

    The username must be unique within the system. Do not include spaces, colons, or commas in the username. For example:


  2. Specify the name of the login class that defines the user’s access privilege. [edit system login user user-name]

    The login class is one of the login classes that you defined in the class statement at the [edit system login] hierarchy level, or one of the default classes listed in Table 17.

  3. Specify the user’s full name.

    If the full name contains spaces, enclose it in quotation marks. Do not include colons or commas. For example:

  4. (Optional) Specify a user identifier (UID) for the user.

    The identifier must be a number in the range 0 through 64,000 and must be unique within the system. If you do not assign a UID to a username, the software assigns one when you commit the configuration, preferring the lowest available number.

    You must ensure that the UID is unique. However, it is possible to assign the same UID to different users.

  5. (Optional) Specify a prompt that the user sees at the SRC CLI

  6. (Optional) Specify the editing level available to the user. The level determines which configuration commands are visible to the user.


    • basic—Minimal set of configuration statements and commands—only the statements that must be configured are visible.

    • normal—Normal set of configuration statements and commands—the common and basic statements are visible.

    • advanced—All configuration statements and commands, including the common and basic ones, are visible.

    • expert—All configuration statements, including common, basic, and internal statements and commands used for debugging, are visible.

  7. (Optional) Specify whether entering a space completes a command.

    If you do not enter a value, complete-on-space is enabled by default.

  8. Define the authentication methods that a user can use to log in to a C Series Controller.

    See Types of Authentication for SRC User Accounts.

  9. Display the results of the configuration.
