microstrategy user setup

Hi everybody,

I'm a newbie to MicroStrategy and I'm going to build up a project for my company including setup of a few users.
My question is: When I look into: desktop - administration tab - user manager; I can see a bunch of user groups like 3rd party users, customers, manager etc.
In case I just want to set up an administration user who creates the reports and a web user who can access the reports of a project, what am I going to do with all these predefined groups? There are many "demo" users  inside the groups. Can I leave it all like it is? Just set up my few users I additionally need? Perhaps by using windows authentication?
I tried to just setup an admin user. When logging into MicroStrategy web I got a hint the license model is violated. So how is the right way to do it?

Thanks in advance and I appreciate any help!

you can easily delete all users you don't like, there's no reason to keep them.

Regarding the license: you are bound to the conditions and have to make certain not to violate this. (I think you've got always 7 days to solve the issue)

An administrator account is always granted, use it as needed.

Now it all depends on which usergroups you have licensed.

You could you copy & paste the user groups here please you I can give you some further suggestions.

BTW. I think you can just disable those unneeded example users, give it a try, will also check tomorrow at our installation.

@Tolomir: I did like you suggested. I disabled all the unused accounts and now the license violation is solved.

Currently I'm trying to set up the necessary accounts using Windows authentication. I'll see if this works.

Thanks so far!
