Each user has an individual account that at a minimum includes a unique login id, username and password.
Within MyST, users are not assigned permissions directly, but only acquire them through the role(s) assigned to them within one or more workspaces.
Users can also be assigned System Roles, which will enable them to manage system specific configurations.
To see a list of MyST Users, click
Users. This will display a list of Users similar to the one below.
The list can be filtered \/ sorted by User Name or Status, by entering the filter criteria in the filter fields (outlined in red in the above screen-shot)

Activate \/ Deactivate User
By default, when you create a User, it is in an active state, meaning that the user is able to log into MyST and perform any actions for which they have been granted privileges.
To disable access to MyST, we can deactivate the User Account.
- Deactivating a User account does not remove any workspace roles they have been granted, but prevents them from logging in and performing any of those roles.
- A deactivated User account can be reactivated at any time.
To deactivate a User account, click on the Actions drop-down menu for the corresponding User and select
Deactivate as illustrated below.
To activate a deactivated environment, click on the Actions drop-down menu for the corresponding User account and select
To delete a User account, click on the Actions drop-down menu for the corresponding User and select
Delete. We will be prompted to confirm our action, click
Yes to proceed.
When deleted the user will be removed from any workspaces to which they belong.
