Add a User

You can use LDAP authentication to store and administer Barracuda Cloud Control user accounts via your organization's LDAP servers. Also see Understanding User Roles and Permissions.

Before adding users to Barracuda Cloud Control via your organization's LDAP servers, verify that users are enabled, are members of the domain, and that the mail attribute is set for each user.

To create a new Barracuda Cloud Control user, the administrator must first add the user to your Barracuda Networks account, and set permissions for that user within the account. For that user, these permissions apply to all Barracuda Networks products and services connected to your Barracuda Networks account. You then create permissions for the user within Barracuda Cloud Control, defining whether the user can view and run reports, manage other Barracuda Cloud Control users, connect products through Barracuda Appliance Control, etc.

To connect Barracuda Networks products through Barracuda Appliance Control, a user must have User Management privileges in Barracuda Cloud Control, and the account administrator must enable Appliance Control under Product Entitlements for that user.

Note: To strictly control user access, consider integrating your company's LDAP authentication with Barracuda Cloud Control. Refer to LDAP Active Directory and Azure AD for details.
