How do I manually include the users or groups for access to the Search and Discovery web page of Instant Archive Viewer for OCS?

It is possible to manually enter users and groups for access to use the Discovery section of Instant Archive Viewer for OCS which serves as an alternative to using the Directory picker shown below in ...itimarchiview/admin/index.aspx
