Managing Users

Managing Users

During the Faraday Server setup process an administrator user is created. Default username is faraday and password will be created randomly . Store this password to be able to change it later on if needed.

If you wish to change your password, run faraday-manage change-password .
If you're using our Demo version, default password is changeme.

To manage users start a session in the Web UI and then click on the Faraday slider menu on the right of the screen and then on Users :

A list containing all the users will show up, including buttons to create, edit or delete.


Faraday supports three types of Roles with different levels of access to the application.

  • Admin: This role lets the administrator manipulate options regarding users, workspaces, vulnerabilities, reports, etc.

  • Pentester: This role allows the pentester to access permitted workspaces and create, edit or erase vulnerabilities.

  • Client: This role is allowed to access permitted workspaces without being able to modify anything.

  • Asset Owner: This role is similar to the Client role, but can modify Vulnerabilities' Status and add Comments, so it's useful for people working in remediation.

Managing Users

From the user window, you can create, edit (change password and role), remove and re-activate users.

Advanced user management

You have further options for user management available by using the  faraday-manage  command inside your Faraday Server instance. With said command, you can
  1. change-password: Changes the password of a user.
  2. create-superuser: Create ADMIN user for your Faraday instance.
  3. rename-user: Change username of a user.

LDAP/AD Integration

You can also enhance your User management inside Faraday with our LDAP/Active Directory integration. More information available here .
