About this task

In this task, you use System Manager to map IdP groups to local user roles.


  1. Click the link for mapping System Manager roles.
    The Role Mapping dialog box opens.
  2. Assign IdP user attributes and groups to the predefined roles. A group can have multiple assigned roles.
    Note: The Monitor role is required for all users, including the administrator. System Manager will not operate correctly for any user without the Monitor role present.
  3. If desired, click Add another mapping to enter more group-to-role mappings.
    Note: Role mappings can be modified after SAML is enabled.
  4. When you are finished with the mappings, click Save.
