Roles can be assigned to both local and remote (LDAP, TACACS+) user accounts. The procedure differs depending on where the account is maintained.

Roles can be assigned to a user account when the account is created or later. In either case, select the role from the Role pull-down list in the configuration popup for the user account.


User accounts are case sensitive.


  1. Navigate to AdministrationAccountsUsers.
  2. Click Create to configure a new account or Edit to modify an existing account.
  3. Select the role from the Role drop-down list. If a custom role is required but is not available, click on Create. See Creating a Role.
