Navigate to the Manage users page...
Sign in to Mingle as a Mingle administrator or project administrator.
Open the admin menu and click the Users link.
Hide/Show deactivated users
By default, Mingle displays all users on your instance. Use the "Show deactivated users" checkbox to show or hide deactivated users.
If you choose not to show deactivated users, when you search, only activated users who contain the keywords will be returned.
Search for a user
Enter keywords in the search box and click the search icon (or hit the enter key). The example below returns all users that contains the "dan" in their profile.
Keywords are searched against sign-in name, display name, email address and version control user name.
By default, Mingle displays users by Display name in ascending order. Sort users by any column with a sort indicator.
Both Mingle administrators and project administrators can sort users. However, the "Last login" column is only shown to Mingle administrators.
Open a user profile
Clicking a user's display name will take you to their profile page.
Change user type
Only Mingle administrators can change someone's user type.
A Mingle administrator will select a user type when creating a new user and can change it from this page. The user type is determined by the status of the "Light user" checkbox and "Administrator" checkbox.
You cannot revoke your own Mingle administrator rights, this prevents you from accidentally revoking all administrator rights.
Audit user login behavior
Only Mingle administrators can audit user login behavior.
Mingle shows a user's last login information. If a user does not have last login information, it could be one of two things:
- The user has never logged into your Mingle instance.
- Your Mingle instance was upgraded from an older version (before Mingle 3.3) and the user has not logged in after the instance was upgraded to Mingle 3.3.
Deactivate a user
Only Mingle administrator can deactivate or re-active a user.
Click on the "deactivate" link to deactivate a user and prevent them from accessing Mingle. A user's information will be grayed out once the user is deactivated.
To reactivate a user, click on the "activate" link.
You cannot delete a user in Mingle who is a current team member on a project or who has any project history associated to them. This is so that the history of that user's actions can be maintained.
A corollary to this is that you shouldn't therefore re-use a Mingle user id by changing the user's name to a different person. This is because all history items which were attributed to the original user would appear as though they had been created by the new user.
Delete a user
- Only Mingle administrators can delete users from an instance.
- A user cannot be recovered after a deletion.
- The 'Delete user' option is not available for users who have any project history associated with them in that instance.
Click on the "Show Deletable Users" button to see what users can be removed from your Mingle instance. Select those users you want to remove and then click on the "Delete" button.
Only Mingle administrators can change a user's password.
Click on the Change password link to change user's password.
