The firewall distinguishes between end users, who connect to the internet from behind the firewall, and administrator users, who have access to firewall objects and settings. You can add or import user records to be used for authentication. When you add (register) a user, you specify the user type and associate the record with a group. The user inherits the policies defined in the group, but the user's policy overrides the group settings.

  • To import users in comma-separated values (CSV) format, click Import.
  • To export users in CSV format, click Export.
  • To change user status from active to inactive (and back), select a user and click Change status.
  • To remove Active Directory users who are not present in the domain, click Purge AD users.
    Note If high availability is configured, users are deleted from both the primary and the auxiliary device. The purge will not interrupt user sign-in or sign-out and accounting events.
