In many organizations, networking and security operations are handled by different teams or members. Such organizations may require a way to limit certain operations to specific users. This topic describes the options provided by NSX to configure such access control.

NSX also supports Single Sign On (SSO), which enables NSX to authenticate users from other identity services such as Active Directory, NIS, and LDAP.

User management in the vSphere Web Client is separate from user management in the CLI of any NSX component.
