User Manager - Cipafilter Documentation

Manual - User Manager

The User Manager page provides the ability to manage accounts associated with the Cipafilter User Manager authentication method available on the Web Filtering page.  Users defined here are used only for proxy/portal authentication — to set up administrative and VPN users, please see the Management Users page.

The Cipafilter User Manager is designed to manage a relatively small number of users — it is not intended to replace a directory service.  A maximum of 2000 total user accounts is supported, and interface performance degradation may occur as this limit is approached.  Customers with more than a handful of accounts are strongly encouraged to implement a full directory service (such as Microsoft Active Directory).
