Blocking and unblocking specific users

You can block and unblock specific users in the Developer Portal.

Before you begin

You must have administrator access to complete this task.


To block or unblock a specific user, complete the following steps:

  1. If the administrator dashboard is not displayed, click Manage to display it.
  2. Click People in the administrator dashboard.
    A list of users is displayed.
  3. Select the check box next to the target user.
  4. From the drop-down list under Action, select Block the selected user(s) or Unblock the selected user(s).
  5. Click Apply to selected items.
    You have blocked or unblocked specific users from the Developer Portal.
    Note: If a user reports that they are unable to login, but they do not appear as blocked, then it might be that they have been blocked by Flood Control. To unblock such users, select Configuration > System > Flood unblock. You can configure your Flood Control settings; see Using flood control for login security for more information.
