How to Add Users for Container Security

Any Manager can add new users and assign them roles and permissions. You can add users from the Administration utility. Before you begin, think about which roles and permissions you want to grant to the new user. See Container Security Users and Permissions for details.

Follow these steps to add a user:

  1. Choose Administration under Utilities in the application picker.
  2. Go to the Users > User Management tab.
  3. From the Create User menu, choose one of the following options:
    • Create Reader User – The user will be assigned the following roles automatically: VM User, Reader, Reporting Reader. The user will not be assigned any Container Security roles/permissions automatically. You’ll need to edit the user account to add CS roles.
    • Create Manager User – The user will have all roles assigned, full permissions and scope. Manager users have access to the Administration utility.
  4. Define the user settings. For help with settings, click the Launch Help link in the upper right corner. Once you've added the user, we’ll send them a welcome email with login instructions.
  5. For a non-Manager user, you’ll need to edit the user's settings to assign the user Container Security roles and permissions. From the User Management tab, choose Edit from the Quick Actions menu. Go to the Roles and Scopes tab to assign roles that you’ve already defined.
