Exercise 2: Set up your user privileges

You must have the appropriate user privileges to define object classes for your version of AutoCAD Map 3D.

Creating a User with the Required Privileges

If your organization does not assign privileges, you can log in as SuperUser. As SuperUser, you can create a user with the privileges you need.

To log in as SuperUser

  1. Click Map Setup tabMap panel User Login. At the Command prompt, enter maplogin.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If you have not changed the SuperUser login, specify the default login name SuperUser and the password SUPERUSER, using the capitalization shown. (Login is case sensitive.)

      Log in as SuperUser to define object classes.

    • If you changed the name or password for SuperUser, type your new information.
  3. Click OK.
