Change a user’s account settings in macOS Server
You can use the Server app to change a user’s name, picture, administrator privileges, and groups the user is in.
Change basic user account settings
In the Server app sidebar, select Users.
Double-click a user account.
To select several accounts, hold down the Command key while clicking user accounts, then click and choose Edit User.
Do any of the following:
To do this
Change the user’s name
In the Full Name field, enter the user’s name.
The name can be up to 255 characters (or as few as 85 Japanese characters), and can include spaces.
Choose whether the user is a server administrator (you can do this for multiple users)
Select or deselect “Allow user to administer this server.”
Add the user to a group (you can do this for multiple users)
Click , then enter the name of a group in the server’s directory. The name autocompletes as you type. Select a group name to add the user to the group. If the name doesn’t autocomplete, make sure you spelled the group name correctly.
You can add users to groups on your server, but you can’t add users to groups in directory domains you’re connected to.
Remove a user from a group (you can do this for multiple users)
Select a group, then click .
All user accounts on your server are included in the Workgroup group. Don’t remove users from this group.
Change the user’s picture (you can do this for multiple users)
Click the silhouette or the existing user picture and select a standard picture, or click Edit Picture for a customized picture.
When you click Edit Picture, you can take a picture with your computer’s camera or choose a picture already on your computer. After taking or choosing a picture, you can drag the picture to pan it or use the slider to zoom it.
When you finish customizing the picture, click Set.
You can define keywords that allow quick searching and sorting of user and group accounts. Using keywords can simplify tasks such as creating groups or editing multiple user accounts.
Add a note
You can add a note to an account to provide information you might need to help a user. You can also search for users or groups based on notes you added for them by entering the note or a portion of the note in the user or group filter field.
Click Done to save your changes to the user account.
