Add a local user account to the BlackBerry Device Service

  1. To open the command window for the BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 User Administration Tool, on the computer that hosts the tool, on the taskbar, click Start > All Programs > BlackBerry Resource Kit for BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 > BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 User Administration Tool.
  2. Type besuseradminclient <credentials> -add -localuser -b <server_name> .
  3. Type -login_name <login_name> , where <login_name> is the login name (or username) for the local user.
  4. Type -login_password <login_password> , where <login_password> is the password for the local user.
  5. Type -display_name <display_name> , where <display_name> is the display name for the local user.
  6. If you want to specify an email address for the local user, type -email_address <email_address> .
  7. If you want to specify the activation type for the local user, type -activation_type <type> , where <type> is blackberry_balance (personal space and work space are available), or work_space_only (only the work space is available).

    The BlackBerry Balance activation type and the Work space only activation type both require an EMM Corporate license. The work space only activation type also requires a device running BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.1 or later and a service plan that supports this feature.

  8. If you want to assign an activation password to the local user, perform one of the following actions:
    • To generate a random activation password and email it to the user, type -wrandom. You must specify -email_address <email_address> in step 6.
    • To specify the activation password, type -w <password> . To specify the number of hours before the activation password expires, type -wt <expiry_time> . The default expiry time is 48 hours. If you use this option, contact the user and give them the activation password.
  9. If you want to add the local user to a group, type -group <group_name> .
  10. If you want to assign an IT policy to the local user, type -it_policy <IT_policy_name>.
