Access Management with local user roles

For Access Management, administrators can use RBAC (role-based access control) capabilities enforced in the storage array. These capabilities are referred to as "local user roles."

Configuration workflow

Local user roles are pre-configured for the storage array. To use local user roles for authentication, administrators can do the following:

  1. An administrator logs in to SANtricity System Manager with a user profile that includes Security Admin permissions.
    Note: The admin user has full access to all functions in the system.
  2. An administrator reviews the user profiles, which are predefined and cannot be modified.
  3. Optionally, the administrator assigns new passwords for each user profile.
  4. Users log in to the system with their assigned credentials.

Management

When using only local user roles for authentication, administrators can perform the following management tasks:
  • Change passwords.
  • Set a minimum length for passwords.
  • Allow users to log in without passwords.
