  • Users are people who use services provided by customers;
  • Each user can have time, traffic and speed limitations;
  • Users belong to specific subscriber, not to customer. Customers can create, modify and delete users but the owner is the subscriber who is also owner of these customers;
  • To separate users among customers of one subscriber, user prefix is used.
  • User data contains:
    • Username and password - used to identify user. Different subscribers can have users with the same username;
    • First name, last name, phone, location. Informational;
    • Email. Used to send notifications to user (for ex., sign-up email);
    • IP address. If not blank, user will get this IP address on successful authorization;
    • Pool name. If not blank, user will get IP address from this IP pool on successful authorization;
    • Group. Sent to Radius client as Mikrotik-Group attribute. Indicates group (/user group) for RouterOS users and profile for HotSpot users. See Radius client documentation for further details, search for "Mikrotik-Group".
    • Download limit. Limit of download traffic, in bytes;
    • Upload limit. Limit of upload traffic, in bytes;
    • Transfer limit. Limit of total traffic (download + upload), in bytes;
    • Uptime limit. Limit of total time the user can use services. When left blank, user is limited in time only by credits;
    • Rate limits. Has several parts. For more detailed description see HotSpot User AAA, search for "rate-limit".
  • User also have read-only counters:
    • Uptime used;
    • Download used;
    • Upload used.

Note: RouterOS users have nothing to do with User Manager user. If you have RouterOS user admin, it doesn't mean it will also be a customer/subscriber in User Manager.
