|Users, Groups, and Permissions / Managing Users|
Learn the considerations and necessary tasks to perform prior to creating the users in your environment.
Here are some possible methods for assigning user IDs:
Make them the same as existing employee ID numbers.
Make them the same as existing email addresses, but without the domain reference. For example, if a user's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, the user ID could be zrohina.
Combine the initial of the first name and the full last name of a user to create a user ID. For example, if a user's name is zami rohina, the user ID could be zrohina.
You can use any combination of alphanumeric values to create a user ID. Pure alphabetic values are typically easier for users to remember. However, in certain situations, you may need to use numeric or alphanumeric values for user IDs.
For example, Vocera uses the user ID as a PIN to uniquely identify users to a nurse call management system. if you are integrating Vocera with a nurse call management system that requires numeric or alphanumeric PINs, you can provide these values as user IDs.
