Manage users locally on SPS

Contains the local users of SPS. You can use local users and groups to control the privileges of SPS local and LDAP users — who can view and configure what.

NOTE:

The admin user is available by default and has all possible privileges. It is not possible to delete this user.

Local users cannot be managed when LDAP authentication is used. When LDAP authentication is enabled, the accounts of local users is disabled, but they are not deleted,

When using RADIUS authentication together with local users, the users are authenticated to the RADIUS server, only their group memberships must be managed locally on SPS.

For details, see Authentication and user database settings.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/aaa/local_database/users
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Sample request

The following command lists the local users.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/aaa/local_database/users

The following command displays the parameters of a specific user.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/aaa/local_database/users/<ID-of-the-user>
Response

The following is a sample response received when querying the list of users.

Managing SPS

Topics:

Troubleshooting options

Configures debug logging and the retention time of core dump files.

  • Debug logging increases the log level of the non-network-related events, adding the commands executed by the SPS web interface to the log.

  • SPS automatically generates core dump files if an important software component of the system crashes. These core dump files can be of great help to the One Identity Support Team to identify problems. To download the generated core dump files, navigate to Basic Settings > Troubleshooting > Core files on the web interface of SPS.
