Editing accounts

You can change the profile of any user or administrator account in Cloudera Data Visualization (CDV).

You must have administrative privileges to perform this action.

The following steps demonstrate how to change the username and permissions for a CDV user account. The process is the same for changing the administrative account.

  1. Click the Gear icon on the main navigation bar to open the Administration menu.
  2. Click Users & Groups.

    The Manage Users & Groups interface appears, open on the Users tab.

  3. In the list of registered users, do one of the following:
    • Click the Username of the user that you want to edit.
    • Click the Pencil icon next to the account that you want to edit.
    The Edit User modal window appears.
  4. You can change the following details:
    • Name & password
      • Username

      • First Name and Last Name

      • Password

    • Permissions
      • Normal user and Admin user

      • Group Membership
      • Roles
    • Active or Inactive
  5. Click SAVE.
After the operation succeeds, you can see the Manage Users & Groups page, showing the Users tab with the updated information.
