A user account provides a unique identifier for each person who attaches to the Global Manager with the Global Console. The username provides a method for tracking who performs the following operations on notifications:
When users acknowledge or unacknowledge a notification, their username is added to the notification’s Owner attribute and recorded in the notification’s audit trail.
When users take ownership, their username is added to the notification’s Owner attribute and this information is recorded in the notification’s audit trail.
When users invoke a tool on a notification, the user’s name is recorded to the notification’s audit trail.
When a user attaches to a Global Manager, the console automatically tries to associate the user with a user profile. If the user is not assigned to a profile, the default-profile is used.Note:
Users must authenticate with a matching username and password in the serverConnect.conf file used by the Global Manager. The VMware Smart Assurance System Administration Guide describes the syntax and configuration of the security files.
