You can manage the users who use Performance Manager, including setting up user accounts, configuring user authentication, and assigning user roles for controlling access to specific features.
What the maintenance user does
Created during initial configuration, the maintenance user can create subsequent users and assign them roles. The maintenance user can also access the maintenance console and has the role of OnCommand Administrator in the GUI.
What RBAC is
RBAC (role-based access control) provides the ability to control who has access to various features and resources in Performance Manager.
You can create local users or database users from the Manage Users page. You can also add remote users or groups belonging to an authentication server. You can assign roles to these users, and based on the privileges of the roles, users can effectively manage the storage objects and data using Performance Manager, or view data in a database.
You can use the Manage Users page to view the list of users who manage storage objects and data using Performance Manager. You can view details about the users, such as the name, type of user, email address, and role assigned to the users.
Editing the user settings
You can edit user settings, such as the email address and role specified for users on the Manage Users page. For example, you might want to change the role of a user who is a storage operator, and assign storage administrator privileges to that user.
