Success Path
Everything you need to implement Industrial IoT in your manufacturing plants

Configure ThingWorx Users

Provide ThingWorx access to the team building your Industrial IoT application. Then create user groups for the rest of the users in your organization.

Create user groups

Create the structure for grouping your users. ThingWorx will assign user permissions (what the user is allowed to see and do) according to the groupings you’re setting up. You can also set permissions at an individual user level. Create your groupings, following the structure you designed earlier in the project.

You must establish this user group framework in order to properly test the application. If necessary, provide ThingWorx credentials to necessary stakeholders or other users who will help you test the application. Make sure they have access to what they need. Later on, you will provide accounts to all the people at your organization who will use ThingWorx.

Add initial users

Provide ThingWorx accounts for the team members developing your IIoT application. You will add these initial users in ThingWorx Composer. ThingWorx includes a default “Administrators” group. Users in this group have complete access to everything. We recommend you assign developers to the “administrator” group, which will provide the permissions they need to develop and validate the application.

For now, focus on creating user accounts for developers and other team members building the application. You will create user accounts for the end users of the application later.
