This article references the use and creation of user accounts on ZLD appliances.
A user account defines the privileges of a user logged into the ZLD appliance. User accounts can be used to control access to configuration and services in the ZLD device.
What type of accounts are supported?
Below is a table showing the account types that can be created on the ZLD appliance and what service(s) they can be used with.
Creating an Account
To create an account login to the ZLD device WebUI and access menu, Configuration → Objects → User/Group. From the User tab, click the Add button to insert a new account.

- User Type – specify the account privilege type (user, admin, limited-admin, etc.).
- Password – provide a password for the new user account.

Additionally, a group can be created to bundle like accounts. This can save time when adding user accounts to services, especially if account list is extensive. To create a user group, go to Configuration → Object → User/Group and select the Group tab. Click the Add button to insert a group entry.

By default, any account added will use 1440-minute timeout period for lease and re-authentication. If you wish to change the default setting so that all accounts you add have a shorter timeout value you can make the necessary changes in, Configuration → Object → User/Group and select the Setting tab. From here you can change the timeout values for the different account types (admin, user, limited-admin, etc.).
