Viewpoint initiation: creation of multiple users

Hi gurus,

I have a group of users who only need to monitor their queries via Viewpoint. They may see each other's queries, they would not have "abort session" rights anyway.

I see 2 possible solutions:

  • one generic VP user for all of them, asociated with all of their Teradata users. Can multiple sessions be connected with a single VP user or they would be treading on each other's toes?
  • create a VP user for each one of them, assign it the right role and configure the portlets to make it look as they expect. This would be at least 1 day of very boring activity. Is there a way to speed things up? Maybe generate a script and run it on the VP server? I'm just trying to avoid a series of mouse-clicks that would have to be done 100 times over and over.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Cheers,

Tomas

To see their own queries, they should be using the My Queries portlet. If you want a group of users to see each others queries but not all queries on the system, then you should setup a Query Group which are configured in the Admin menu. Query groups was released in Viewpoint 13.12 so refer to the release article for more information:
