Administrators can create user accounts to provide access to the Log Insight Web user interface.

The current version of Log Insight supports two user roles, Normal user and Admin user.

Verify that you are logged in to the Log Insight Web user interface as an Admin user. The URL format is https://log-insight-host, where log-insight-host is the IP address or host name of the Log Insight virtual appliance.


Click the configuration drop-down menu icon and select Administration.


Under Management, click Users.


Click New User.


In the Authentication Method drop-down menu, select Default (built-in).


Type a user name and email address.

The email address is optional.


From the Role drop-down menu, select the user role.



Normal User

Normal users can access the full functionality of Log Insight to view log events, run queries to search and filter logs, import content packs into their own user space, add alert queries, and manage their own user accounts to change their password or email address. Normal users do not have access to the administration options, cannot share content with other users, cannot modify the accounts of other users, and cannot install a content pack as a content pack.


Admin users can access the full functionality of Log Insight, can administer Log Insight, and can manage the accounts of all other users.


Copy the password from the Password text box and provide it to the user.


Click Save.
