  4. In the Password text box, type the user password. The user password should be between 6 and 128 characters long.

    A Junos Scope software password should meet the following restrictions:

    • Enforce a minimum of 6 characters.
    • Require a change in the character set, including uppercase, lowercase, numeric, and punctuation.
  5. In the Confirm Password text box, retype the user password to confirm it.
  6. In the User Groups drop-down list box, select one or more user groups for the user. Press Ctrl+click to select several user groups randomly. Press
    Shift+click to select several user groups in a row. For more information about user groups and permissions, see Predefined User Groups, User Group Permission Levels, and Permissions and Junos Scope Feature Access Privileges.
  7. Click OK.

    The new user is added to the Junos Scope software database and listed in the Users dialog box by username, access privilege level, and toolbox access level.
