Managing Users

Each Harmony Cloud user will need to configure their profile to specify which version of Harmony Stage they want to start when using the “Open in Stage” functionality in Harmony Cloud.

In a production environment, different Harmony users will tend to have different roles. In order to limit functionality, users should be created in Control Center and/or in Harmony Cloud that reflect their respective roles. For example, a user who is assigned to ink and paint should only have access to the Paint module, and therefore should be created as a user with the type: ink and paint.

Everyone who uses Harmony must have a login name in order to run any of the modules. Harmony Cloud also requires users to have a secure password.

By default, only the admin user is created in Harmony Cloud.

The Manage Users tab lists all the users and their details, including; user name, first and last names, and user type. The buttons at the top of the dialog box and the options on right-click let you add, delete or modify the list of users.

Because Harmony Cloud requires a password, existing users (seen through the Control Center interface) will need to be re-added through the Cloud interface. Doing so will simply update the user information to make the user accessible to Cloud. When adding a brand new user through the Cloud interface, that user will automatically have access to the modules such as Control Center, Stage, Paint, Xsheet, Scan and Play if their user type allows it.

As your studio network grows and evolves, you may need to delete old or obsolete user profiles from your system. After you delete a user profile, the person who used that profile will no longer be able to access any Harmony modules including Harmony Cloud and Control Center.

You cannot delete yourself from the user list. If you accidentally delete a name, you must follow the procedures for adding a user to get the name back into the system.

You can modify the user profiles at any time to update the user information. You will not be allowed to modify or delete the admin user.
