The User list displays all users who have and their privileges to manage devices in your network. Each managed device authenticates the stored user names. You can add new users and assign roles from the same User List screen.
Warning: When you add users, you must use the same administrator-level user name that you currently use for managing BIG-IP systems in your network. This ensures that you can successfully manage devices as soon as Enterprise Manager discovers them and adds them to the Device List screen.

On the Main tab, expand System and click Users.
The Users list screen opens.
2.
Click Create.
The New User screen opens.

In the User Name field, type the administrative-level user name that you are currently using to manage BIG-IP systems in your network.

For Password, in the New and Confirm fields, type the password for the user and confirm the password.

From the Role list, select Administrator, Operator, or Application Editor.
Note: If you select another user role, managed devices cannot authorize the user to perform management tasks, and the user cannot initiate tasks using the Enterprise Manager system.
