Delete a User

it is easy to delete a user in Aternity if required.


There is no way to restore a deleted user afterwards. To delete a user temporarily, for example if a user is unavailable for some time, you can disable the login without removing it entirely. Deselect the Enabled check box to temporarily disable that user's access to the system.


  1. Step 1 Open a browser and log in to Aternity.
  2. Step 2 Select the Gear Icon > Users.

    View the list of usernames already defined in the system to view your data.

    If a user from a group in your Active Directory (AD) accesses the system, their details appear in this list, but you cannot edit their properties, since they are managed as part of their AD group.


    This list of users are allowed to sign in to view Aternity. This is NOT the list of monitored usernames and device details which is obtained by the Aternity Agent running directly on the monitored device.
