You view and manage Data Management for VMware Tanzu users from the Users view in the console.

The Users view includes information about each configured user:

  • The First Name column identifies the first name of the user.
  • The Last Name column identifies the last name of the user.
  • The Email Id column identifies the email address for the user, which is the user's login name in the Data Management for VMware Tanzu console.
  • The Roles column identifies the role of the user: Provider, Org Admin, or Org User.
  • The Organization column identifies the organization in which the user is a member.
  • The Type column identifies the type of user.

    • Local (DMS user account stored locally in the Provider database)
    • LDAP (imported user from an existing LDAP identity provider)

More About LDAP Users

The Users view displays an LDAP user after the user logs in to Data Management for VMware Tanzu for the first time. An LDAP user listed in this view can represent:

  • A registered user in the LDAP server that is currently associated with a DMS organization via group membership.
  • An LDAP user that successfully connected to DMS to create and manage services, but is no longer listed in the LDAP directory.

Clicking on an LDAP user row in the Users view displays the DMS organizations to which the LDAP user belongs.

Supported Actions

The Action column displays three vertical dots when there are DMS operations that you can perform on the user.

Note: Data Management for VMware Tanzu does not expose any actions for users acting in the PROVIDER role, or for users that you imported from LDAP.

You can perform the following Local user actions:

Action Description
