You can add system administrators for your Cloud Foundation installation by giving user accounts the Admin role in SDDC Manager.

Before you begin

Verify the user is present and enabled for access in the management domain's identity sources. Only such users and groups can be assigned permissions to log in to the SDDC Manager client. See Active Directory and the Cloud Foundation Environment, Configure an Active Directory Domain as an Identity Source for your Cloud Foundation Environment, and Add Local Users and Groups.

About this task

Giving a user account the Admin role gives that user the privileges to perform all of the operations that are performed using the SDDC Manager client.

Procedure

  1. In the SDDC Manager client, navigate to User Management > Users & Groups.
  2. Assign the Admin role to the user.
    • If the user name is listed on the Users & Groups page, because the user is already assigned a role, edit the Users & Groups page to change the user's role to the Admin role. Enable the page for editing by clicking the edit icon, change the user's role to the Admin role, and save the changes.

    • If the user name is not listed on the Users & Groups page, because the user is not yet assigned a role, click Add User/Group to locate the user, assign the role, and save the changes.

      Note:

      The Admin role has the description Super Admin.

Results

The user can now log in to the SDDC Manager client and perform system administrator operations.
