Assigning license options to a user
If you have named user licensing, Actuate BIRT iHub requires the assignment of license options to each user to support the user accessing, running, and viewing BIRT reports in an Encyclopedia volume. Use Management Console to create a user and a home folder, and assign license options in an Encyclopedia volume. A user uses the home folder to access, run, and view BIRT reports using a web browser.
How to create a user and a home folder, and assign license options
In this task, create a new user, and specify a home folder for the user, using Management Console.
