Details of the new user

A Ketura user is someone who is being managed using the Ketura system and for whom an account on the Ketura server has been created. Each user is a member of a group, which in turn determines the permissions that a user possesses. Only active users are allowed to log on to the system. For background information on users, see Ketura Tour Step 6: Users and Contacts.
