Manage user administration system properties

The administrator can add or modify system properties to let users view their profile, automatically create a user record from a registration request, and modify the impersonate option

Allow a user to view a profile

Users are able to view their profile by clicking their name in the Welcome banner. If your users cannot do this, enable a system property.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the System Properties [sys_properties] table.
  2. Search for the glide.ui.welcome.profile_link property.
  3. Set the value to true.

Enable auto processing of a request

You can enable auto processing of user self-registration requests by setting a property.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

Procedure

  1. Navigate to System Properties > System.
  2. Select the check box for the property Enable auto processing of user registration requests.
  3. Click Save.
    If enabled, registration requests do not require approval. Instead, the business rule Auto-Process User Registration creates the user record from the information provided.

Modify the impersonate option

You can modify, enable, or disable the impersonate option.

The impersonation option and its effects are contained in a UI macro. The UI macro is called impersonate_button. Modifying this UI macro is not recommended.

The impersonation capability can be enabled/disabled with the glide.ui.impersonate_button.enable UI Property, "Enable impersonation button in banner line".
