In order to access messages between Widget Ltd and Tucker Inc.’s ERP systems, you must create a user account that is common to all systems in the messaging process.
If you have downloaded the Community Edition of Universal Platform, you will not be able to create a user account. This is because the Community Edition only supports a single user. In this case, you can proceed by using the Administrator user account.
To add a user:
- Click Add. The User Details screen is displayed.
- On the General tab, configure the user as follows:
- Click Save.
Now that you have added a user, you must assign them to a role.
Roles group permissions based on the responsibility users have in the system and determine the aspects of the system users have access to. By creating roles, you can quickly assign a set of permissions to a user, or quickly provide multiple users permissions to a task.
This role is used later in this tutorial by the messaging components to send and read messages in the queue.
- Select the Roles tab.
- Select universal-users from the list in the Roles section.
- Click Add.
- Click Save & Close.
Now that you have configured the messaging service and created a common user account, the next step is to create the credentials for the user account to access the remote ERP systems.
