Administer Users

Managing users includes creating new user accounts, assigning roles, groups, and partitions to users, managing user passwords, maintaining additional user information, and deactivating or deleting existing accounts.

The collection of information and group associations assigned to a user is interactioned a user profile. This section explains how to create user accounts and manage user profiles.


  1. In the top right corner of the screen, select Administrator/your name > Administer Users.
  2. If you are not an administrator your name will appear instead of the term Administrator.
    The Administer Users screen opens and displays a list of the existing user accounts.

  3. Click New New user.PNG.
  4. A blank Add Profile screen opens.

  5. Fill in the fields as follows:
  6. Field Description
    Active Select this check box to make the account active. An account must be active for the user to log into it.
    User Login Enter a username for the user.
    Authentication Select SpeechMiner if you want the username and password to be managed by SpeechMiner and stored in SpeechMiner's database. Select Windows if the user will log into SpeechMiner using the same username and password they use to log into Windows. The fields required to configure the selected option are displayed.
    Old Password This field is not relevant to new accounts. This field only appears if SpeechMiner is selected under Authentication.
    New Password Type a password for the account. This field only appears if SpeechMiner is selected under Authentication.
    Verify Password Type the password for the account again to ensure it was typed correctly. This field only appears if SpeechMiner is selected under Authentication.
    User must change password at next logon Select this option to require the user to change their password the next time they log into SpeechMiner. This field only appears if SpeechMiner is selected under Authentication.
    Windows Domain Type the name of the Windows domain in which the user's account is managed. This field only appears if Windows is selected under Authentication.
    User Roles Select the user roles to associate with the account. These roles define the permissions the user will have in SpeechMiner. For additional information, see Managing Roles. If roles appear in the list but are not active, you do not have the permissions required to assign these roles to users.
    User Groups Select the groups to associate with the account. Each group represents a set of work groups and/or partitions that identify which interaction data the user will be able to access. For additional information, see Managing Groups.
    User Partitions If you want to enable the user to access interaction data from additional work groups and/or partitions that are not included in their groups, select them here.
    First Name Enter the user's first name.
    Last Name Enter the user's last name.
    Title Enter the user's title.
    Organization Enter the organization the user works for.
    Phone Enter the user's phone number.
    Email Enter the user's e-mail address.
    Home Page Enter the address of any page in the SpeechMiner web interface to make that page the user's homepage. Enter the address in the following format: /pages/[page location]

    You can copy the page address from the end of the Address field of the browser when the page is open. For example, if you want to use the Templates page as the homepage, and the address of the New Search page is http://myserver/speechminer/pages/ui/#/reports/templates, you would remove the base of the address (enter http://myserver/speechminer) and enter pages/ui/#/reports/templates.

    Note: If this field is left blank, the last view the user had open in their Views page is opened when they log in.

    Comments Enter any additional comments.
    Mapping If the user is an interaction-center agent, select the user's name in the interaction center's recording system. If the user is an interaction-center manager, select the name of the work group they manage. You can select the name or work group in one of the following ways:
    • In the text field, begin typing the name of the agent or work group. A drop-down list of names that contain the combination of letters you type appears. Keep typing until you see the name, and then click it to select it.
    • Click Browse.png. A list of work groups opens. Click a work group to select it, or expand the relevant work group and then click the name of the agent to select it.

    Note: Mapping SpeechMiner users to interaction-center agents makes it possible to create a Saved Report for the "current user." This means that a single Saved Report can be run by different users to retrieve report data about themselves, or their subordinates. For additional information, see Creating a Custom Report.

    Send Email Notification If you want to send the new user an e-mail message telling them that their account is open and explaining how to access it, select this check box. The e-mail message is sent to the address specified in the Email field.
  7. Click Save Changes.
  8. The new account is created. The Edit Profile screen closes and the Administer Users screen is displayed. If you selected to send the user an e-mail notification, the e-mail is sent.

You can filter the list of existing users in a number of ways to help you find the accounts that interest you.

  1. In the top right corner of the screen, select Administrator/your name > Administer Users.
  2. If you are not an administrator your name will appear instead of the term Administrator.
    The Administer Users screen opens and displays the list. The list includes a summary of each user's profile.

  3. Perform one or more of the following:
  • If you want to filter by user name, type a letter or combination of letters in the Name field. User accounts that do not include the specified combination of letters will be hidden from the list.
  • If you want to filter by role, open the Roles drop-down list and select a role or roles you want to include in the list.
  • If you want to filter by group, open the Groups drop-down list and select the group or groups you want to include in the list. (For additional information about using the Multi-Select box, see Defining Search Criteria.)
The filter is activated and accounts that do not match the filter settings are not displayed.

You can delete existing user accounts as necessary. When an account is deleted, all saved searches, reports, and scheduled reports created by the user are deleted. If you want to keep these items, but you do not want the user account to be accessible, you can deactivate the account (see Modifying User Profiles above). When an account is deactivated, the user cannot log into it, but the profile is saved and saved searches and reports can be retained. The account can be reactivated later on as necessary.

To delete user accounts

  1. In the Administer Users screen, select the check box associated with the user account you want to delete.
  2. Above the list, click Delete (Smicon delete.png). You are prompted to confirm that you want to delete the selected accounts.
  3. Click OK.
  4. The accounts are deleted.
