Create User Profiles in the Vista Application

For each user, you must provide the user access to Vista™ by Viewpoint by setting up a user profile in Vista, which contains username and password credentials so that the user can log in.

Note: Only use these instructions if your organization has a Viewpoint Enterprise Cloud deployment and Viewpoint is hosting your cloud environment in Cloud Jumper. If you don't know, contact your system administrator.

If instead you need instructions on adding users to an on-premises environment, see Setting Up Vista Users (LAN).

Before completing this task, a system administrator must set up each Vista user in the Cloud Admin portal. See Create Portal Records for Vista Users.
To set up a Vista user:
  1. From the Vista main menu, select Viewpoint Administration > Programs > VA User Profile.
  2. Place your cursor in the User Name field and press F4.
    The System Users Lookup form appears with the Viewpoint Users radio button selected by default.
  3. Select the Systems Users radio button.
    The list refreshes to display system users. These are the user records you created in the Cloud Admin Portal.
  4. Locate and select the username.
    Note: The username shown in the lookup may differ slightly from what the system administrator set up in the online VEC portal. This is due to a system default that converts special characters to underscores and truncates the username length to 20 characters. You cannot change this default.
  5. Click OK to accept your selection and close the list.
  6. In the User Type drop-down list, select Vista.
  7. Save the record.
  8. Complete other fields as desired. Press F1 for information on any field.
The user can now log in as long as you created a password for them in the Cloud Admin Portal. See Manage Portal Records for Vista Users.
