The vCenter Single Sign-On Groups tab shows groups in the local domain, vsphere.local by default. You add groups if you need a container for group members (principals).
You cannot add groups to other domains, for example, the Active Directory domain, from the vCenter Single Sign-On Groups tab.
If you do not add an identity source to vCenter Single Sign-On, creating groups and adding users can help you organize the local domain.
- Log in with the vSphere Client to the vCenter Server connected to the Platform Services Controller.
- Specify the user name and password for firstname.lastname@example.org or another member of the vCenter Single Sign-On Administrators group.
If you specified a different domain during installation, log in as administrator@ mydomain.
- Navigate to the vCenter Single Sign-On user configuration UI.
- From the Home menu, select Administration.
- Under Single Sign On, click Users and Groups.
- Select Groups, and click Add Group.
- Enter a name and description for the group.
You cannot change the group name after you create the group.
- Click Add.
What to do next
- Add members to the group.
