User account management is the process that focuses on the administration of users of IT and information systems. This process manages the registration of users and the authorization of their roles within the Tygron Platform. Authorized access is secured with a user specific login name and password.

Each user always belongs to one domain. Therefore, there are two types of user account management.

  1. An existing user can manage it's own user account.
  2. Every domain needs to have at least one Domain Admin who can manage the domain. This Domain Admin is also a user.

Examples of User Management options are:

  • Configuring which projects and project versions a user can access
  • Whether access to that project is read-only
  • Whether a user can update his credentials (login, password)
  • Whether a user can save changes made to a project;
  • Whether a user can host or join a session with other users

Different account types

The following account types can be assigned to a user by a Domain Admin to limit what a user can do within the domain:

Access level Description Available options
in main menu
JOIN ONLY This account can only join, or be invited to a hosted session Join only
HOST SESSION This account can, besides joining sessions, start single & multiplayer sessions, including the inviting of other users Host Session
EDITOR This account type can, besides hosting and participating in sessions, create and edit its own projects Editor
DOMAIN ADMIN This account is the highest access level available. With this account you can also manage other accounts from your user domain. Group Admin

Managing the Security Policy for a Domain

Within a domain it is possible for the Domain Admin to set up two specific Security Options.

Two-Factor Verification

It is possible to enable Two-Factor Verification, where users are requested to enter a secondary Security Code at login, which will be sent automatically by text message to the phone number of the user that wants to log in. I.E. this setting is enabled for the selected account type and up. If it is enabled for the Editor Account type, the verification is also required for the Domain Admin account. Please note that entering phone numbers for users is required for this option.

Minimal Password Length

This option lets the Domain Admin select the minimal number of characters required for a user password set by the user, or by password resets.
