As a system administrator or virtual infrastructure administrator, you manage user access control in vRealize Operations so that you can ensure the security of your objects. Your company just hired a new person, and you must create a user account and assign a role to the account so that the new user has permission to access specific content and objects in vRealize Operations.

In this scenario you will learn how to create user accounts and roles, and assign roles to the user accounts to specify access privileges to views and objects. You will then demonstrate the intended behavior of the permissions on these accounts.

You will create a new user account, named Tom User, and a new role that grants administrative access to objects in the vRealize Operations Clusters. You will apply the new role to the user account.

Finally, you will import a user account from an external LDAP user database that resides on another machine to vRealize Operations, and assign a role to the imported user account to configure the user's privileges.


Verify that the following conditions are met:
  • vRealize Operations is installed and operating properly, and contains objects such as clusters, hosts, and virtual machines.
  • One or more user groups are defined.

What to do next

Create a new role.
