Manually Adding Users

New users are added to the PST Basic Access group by default. Members of this group can log into DTP, but they cannot view data or use any other DTP functionality. You can add new users to projects (see Adding Teams to Projects) or configure their permissions and/or group membership (see Configuring User Permissions and Groups) to enable users to interact with data and/or DTP functionality.

  1. Choose User Administration from the settings menu (gear icon) and click Add User.
  2. Enter the new user’s information (username and password are required) when prompted. 

    About DTP Passwords

    User credentials enable Parasoft code analysis and testing tools (i.e., C/C++test, dotTEST, Jtest, and SOAtest) to connect to DTP. These tools can run in an IDE or on the command line. If run from the command line, characters are limited to alphanumeric characters and hyphens for passwords. Refer to your Parasoft tool's documentation for additional information.

  3. Click Create to add the user to the database.

Case Sensitivity

By default, user login names are case sensitive (e.g., "JohnSmith", "johnSmith", and "johnsmith" are all different users). You can change user login case sensitivity by setting the <case-sensitive> property in the $DTP_HOME/conf/PSTRootConfig.xml file to false and restarting DTP Server:


This setting affects all functionality related to user names (for example, login, reports, Extension Designer, etc.)

Configuring User Permissions and Group Membership

After adding users to the database, you can configure their permissions and group membership (see Configuring User Permissions and Groups).

Adding Users to Projects

Creating users and assigning them permissions and groups does not automatically add them to a project. Users must be added to project teams and the teams added to projects in Report Center project administration. See Creating and Managing Projects for instructions on adding users to teams and adding teams to a project.

Importing Users

You can configure DTP to connect to your LDAP server so that you can easily import users from your directories. See Configuring LDAP for details. 

Deleting Users from the Database

  1. Choose User Administration from the settings menu (gear icon) and click the Users tab.
  2. Click the delete button (trash icon) next to the user you want to delete.
  3. Click Confirm when prompted to finish deleting the user.

Editing a User

  1. Choose User Administration from the settings menu (gear icon) and click the Users tab.
  2. Click on the user you want to edit.
  3. Click the General to change profile information, such as password, name, and email. 
  4. Click the Permissions & Groups tab to change access to DTP functionality. See Configuring User Permissions and Groups.
  5. Click Save to commit the changes or click Cancel to exit the edit user page without saving.
