Step 3. Under Common Request, click See All Templates. A list of all Common Request templates will be displayed.
Step 4. From the Common Request menu, select VPN User Management - add, reset, delete VPN user(s) on firewall(s).
Step 5. In the Issue Details section you can select one, multiple or all of the following VPN user management options as shown in following image.
Step 6. Check the box next to Create new VPN user on firewall.
Step 7. In the Firewall drop-down field, select the appropriate firewall(s).
