Slide 1

 

In this tutorial we are looking at the difference between a Logon User and a Non-Logon User.

A Non–Logon User is typically a User that we create as a Profile only so that we can use it for the Setting up of other Users.

 

Slide 2

 

Now if I go to Maintain User

 

Slide 3

 

Maintain User again

 

Slide 4

 

 

 

Slide 5

 

And I use Lookup.

 

 

Slide 6

 

Now this is only one of many Lookups available to find a User Code.

 

Slide 7

 

Notice that whenever we use a routine, to find a User Code, we always get an Option to Select from all User codes

Or only from Logon User codes

Or only from Non-Logon User codes.

 

Slide 8

 

Because we may end up in a big System with a whole long list of Usercodes and very often we only want to work specifically with Real Users, so then we will Select from the shorter list by just choosing from Logon Usercodes.

But when we want to include all the Usercodes that are available in the System, then of course that would be the 1st Option.

When we want to specifically retrieve a Non-Logon Usercode, then that would be the shorter list on Option 3.

So let me do that and let us have a look at these.

Slide 10

 

 

 

Slide 11

 

 

 

Slide 12

 

Now let us see what the Non Logon Usercodes list.

 

Slide 13

 

Now let us take this one, IES General User.

A Non Logon User is somebody who does not really use the System, but we Set up this User with a set of Menu Access Profiles, even Business Profiles, so that we can use that for the Setting Up of Real Users.

Especially in Profile Subscription, which we discuss in other Tutorials.

 

Slide 14

 

Now note this Option here, Profile Only, Not a Real User.

 

Slide 15

 

So whenever we have a Usercode that is not a Real User, that is not going to use the System as a Real User, we check this Field and we also check this Field: Suspended from Logon.

 

Slide 16

 

 

 

Slide 17

 

That means that this Usercode cannot be used to Log onto the System.

However in die Menu Options that we give to this Usercode, we can use Profile Subscription and also to copy from when we want to give Access to another User.

So that is the difference between a Non-Logon User and a Real User.

 

Slide 18

 

So if I look at a Real User, myself in this case, then we will notice that my Password is not Suspended at the moment. So I can Logon and also I am not listed as Profile Only.

 

Slide 19

 

 

 

Slide 20

 

 

 

Slide 21

In other words I am a Real User.
