Users and user groups

All users in Yoopl access the Yoopl application through the web-based frontend. Each user is assigned a unique login name and a password.

All user passwords are encrypted and stored in the Yoopl database. Users cannot use their user id and password to log directly into the UNIX server unless they have also been set up accordingly to UNIX. Communication between the web server and the user browser can be protected using SSL.

With a flexible user permission schema you can restrict and differentiate access to:

  • administrative Yoopl frontend functions
  • monitored hosts in hostgroups

The 'guest' user is used for unauthenticated users.
