Set Up a Named Login User as a System Admin

Named login users are System Admins who do not have a PR Employee profile in Vista.

All users must have a PR Employee profile set up in Vista in order to be assigned to modules on the User Access page. However, you may need to set up a System Admin who is not a PR Employee (for example, an external IT user). These administrators cannot be assigned to application modules and have limited permissions on core system admin pages (Approval Permissions, Admin Roles, User Access, Employee Groups, Login Auditing, Mail Log, Manage Lookups, Portal Settings).
Important: Only System Admins can grant administrator rights to other users.
  1. Select Admin > User Access.
  2. Select the More button in the upper right.
  3. Select Setup Named Login Users.
    The Named Login Setup window opens.
  4. Select Add User.
  5. Enter the username and password for the new System Admin.
    This system admin will be able to reset the password after logging in.
  6. Select Add User.
    The system returns to the Named Login Setup window.
  7. Copy the link shown in the Login Page field, and send it to the new System Admin.
    This URL is your portal URL with /Account/NamedLogin added. The named login user must have this link to be able to log in to your portal.
