Now that the domain is set, you need to create a User. If you'll be using Jungle Disk across a team, you may need to create several users.
Before we continue with our discussion, let us define a few key terms:
- User: A non-administrative user who will be using software to backup files and access files stored through Jungle Disk. The domain you set and their username/password will be what they use to verify their account with our software.
- Online Disk: Main storage point for Jungle Disk, this is where files and backups are stored. Accounts can have multiple Online Disks that can be accessed by one or many Users. Administrators can set "permissions" for users' access to disks.
From the main page, click "Manage Users & Permissions". Under the "Create a New User" heading, enter a username, password, and tags (optional, but may be helpful if you're setting up for a team).
Please note that tags are used if you want to sort your team members into separate reports; such as finance, marketing, etc. Users will not see their tag or know that their account is tagged.
Underneath this section is the "Private Online Disk" check-box. If checked, this will create a new Online Disk with the same name as this username. This username will also be given Read/Write access to this Online Disk automatically. Step 4 of this guide will go over how to create Online Disks manually.
There are also some other options here, such as the storage provider, location, and additional security.
Click the "Create New User" button to complete this step. Within 5 minutes, you'll be able to log into our software and Web Access with this username. To get a quick link to your Web Access site, on the top of the Control Panel, click on the Online Disk drop down, then Web Access.
