You create system user accounts for the individuals who log in to the Mapp Engage user interface and work in your Mapp Engage system. Each system user requires a username and password to log in to Mapp Engage.
Mapp Engage automatically sends a system message to the new system user to confirm that an account has been created. The default system message includes a link to Mapp Engage where they can enter a password and immediately start working with Mapp Engage.

API User: The system user is an automated process or interface that interacts directly with the Mapp Engage database via an API.
Hybrid User: The system user is a person who accesses Mapp Engage both through the user interface and through an API.
