Understanding Edge User Administration Options
Adding new Users
From the Users page, select the "Add" button with the green "+" sign.
Populate the fields below with the necessary information and click the blue "Add User" button.
Once you click the blue Add User button, your server will prompt you with a message stating the user account was successfully created. The page will redirect to the users’ profile page where you will define the users access control for the server and data on the server.
Security and Access
The first area you populate for the user profile is Identity. Populate the fields with any necessary information. You will choose the Organization to which the user is apart.
Note: You can add the user to an Organization at a later time if you have yet to set one up.
The Security area allows the Soltra Edge administrator to reset the users’ password, create a certificate if the Edge server is using Two-Way authentication, and provides details to the administrator of the Recent Failed Login Attempts.
Note: The Orange “Administrator rights in effect” text is a message for the Soltra Edge administrator alerting the admin user that they are executing these actions with full admin rights.
The last page in Security and Access is the Access page. On this page, the Soltra Edge administrator is able to set the specific users’ server/data access utilizing several different options.

The Soltra Edge administrator will need to state what TLP level the user being created will be allowed to access.
No TLP selected
- User will only see data where objects do not have a TLP associated
- Default level for new users
Selecting one TLP or a combination of TLP (example White and Green)
- User will be able to see only data with White and Green TLP markings
Selecting all TLP (White, Green, Amber, Red)
- User will be able to see all objects expect objects without a TLP marking
Authorized TAXII Inbox Namespaces
Input TAXII namespaces that the user is allowed to see data from.
The filter area is a new feature in 2.11 for the Users page. Filter enables you to filter the list of users via name, email, or organization.
Filter by Name
From the list, enter first name, last name, or first and last to filter the list of users displayed.
Filter by Email
Enter part of the email address, full email address, or domain to filter the list of users in the list.
Filter by Organization
To filter by Organization use “org:” and type in the name of the Organization.
Making a User Inactive
When you add a new user the user by default is set to active status. To make the user inactive, uncheck the users’ active checkbox corresponding to the users’ profile row on the user’s page.
When the inactive user tries to sign into the Soltra Edge server, they will be met with the following message.
Where the user is logged in, all navigation options are disabled and the first option the user tries to select will auto log the user out of the server.
To reactivate the users account, select the check box.
The user is now able to sign into the Soltra Edge server as normal.
Downloading a copy of your Users
To get an offline copy of your users, select the "CSV" button.
A users list in .csv format will be located in your Downloads folder or the folder that is specified to host all internet downloads.
