The InterBase API includes three functions that permit authors of InterBase applications to add, delete, and modify users programmatically using three API functions: isc_add_user( ), isc_delete_user( ), and isc_modifiy_user( ). These functions are deprecated in InterBase 6 and later, however, because they are replaced by functions in the InterBase Services API.

The InterBase Services API provides a much broader and more robust set of tools for programmatically managing users in the security database. See “Working with Services” in the API Guide for details and examples of using the Services API functions.

For programmers using Delphi and C++Builder, the IBX components include components for managing users. For more information on using the IBX components, refer to the Developer's Guide.
