8.0 Overview of PlateSpin User Management

PlateSpin Transformation Manager provides a user management system for users of the PTM Server Web Interface. You must create user accounts and assign roles to them to grant permissions for access to the Web Interface features and project data. You can also create user accounts to functionally represent PlateSpin Migrate Connector as a user in order to uniquely identify activity of the Connector assigned to a project.

When users log in to the Web Interface, PTM authenticates them against the PTM user database. User authentication is not integrated with your enterprise directory. Role-based access controls govern the information users can see and the actions they can perform during the session.
