If you use VMware Identity Manager™, you can set it up to access CSM from within NSX Manager.


  1. Configure vIDM for NSX Manager and CSM. See instructions at Configure VMware Identity Manager Integration in the NSX-T Data Center Administration Guide.
  2. Assign the same role to the vIDM user for NSX Manager and CSM, for example, Enterprise Admin role assigned to the user named vIDM_admin. You must log in to NSX Manager and CSM each and assign the same role to the same username. See Add a Role Assignment or Principal Identity in the NSX-T Data Center Administration Guide for detailed instructions.
  3. Log in to NSX Manager. You are redirected to the vIDM login.
  4. Enter the vIDM user's credentials. Once you log in, you can switch between NSX Manager and CSM by clicking the Applications icon.
