System administrators use a combination of user logins, role-based access control, permissions, and data sets to manage vRealize Log Insight users. Role-based access control lets administrators manage users and the tasks that they can perform.

Roles are sets of permissions required to perform particular tasks. System administrators define roles as part of defining security policies, and grant the roles to users. To change the permissions and tasks associated with a particular role, the system administrator updates the role settings. The updated settings take effect for all users associated with the role.

  • To allow a user to perform a task, the system administrator grants the role to the user.

  • To prevent a user from performing a task, the system administrator revokes the role from the user.

Managing access, roles, and permissions for each user is based on their user login account. Each user can be granted multiple roles and permissions.

Users who cannot view or access certain objects or cannot perform certain operations were not granted the permissions to do so.
