This datatype allows storage and retrieval of a single user account. Whenever an object that uses this datatype is published for the first time, the system will create a new user. The user's ID number will be the identification number of the object. The following screenshot shows the class attribute edit interface for this datatype.

User account settings
The properties of a user account can be tweaked by the administrator. This can be done by following the "Change user account settings" link from within the view of a user account object in the administration interface. Currently it is only possible to change whether the user account should be enabled or disabled (whether the user is allowed to log in to the system or not). The following screenshot shows the user account settings panel.
