FaxMaker requires users to be added as Licensed users before they are able to send or receive faxes. They can be added as individual users or as a group. This guide will explain adding users and groups in both environments.
Add a new licensed user or group.
Notes about users in Active Directory domains
- Domain Admins are recommended for the service account which is used to access the domain and verify users.
- If Domain Admin cannot be used, please see Access Rights for the Service Logon Account for setting up a custom service account.
- Trust-between-domains configurations are not supported by GFI FaxMaker
Below lists the options available from the licensed users node in the FaxMaker Configuration.
Adding users or groups
To send a Welcome email, select the users or groups to send the Welcome email to and click Send welcome instructions.
The Welcome email can also be sent to individual members of a group. Open the group properties and select the Welcome Email tab. Select the users to send the Welcome email to and click Send.
|Reset user password
Right-click a user/group and click Properties to show user properties.
|Web Service API users
Register users that will make use of the GFI FaxMaker Web Service API functionality. Right-click user to register and from the Web API Service tab select Web Service API User.
NOTE: Received faxes that are routed to users registered for Web Service API are stored in the Web Service API queue and not forwarded to the user via email.
To remove a user from the Web API register, right-click the user and from the Web API Service tab uncheck Web Service API User. Click OK.
NOTE: When unregistering users from the Web API Service, all faxes in their names that are in the service queue are permanently deleted. Unregister users with caution.
Right-click a user/group to delete and click Delete. Click OK to confirm.
Users are removed from GFI FaxMaker but not removed from Active Directory or GFI Directory.
