What do I need to know about mapping to storage array roles?


Before mapping groups to roles, review the guidelines.

The RBAC (role-based access control) capabilities include the following roles:

  • Storage admin — Full read/write access to storage objects on the arrays, but no access to the security configuration.

  • Security admin — Access to the security configuration in Access Management and Certificate Management.

  • Support admin — Access to all hardware resources on storage arrays, failure data, and MEL events. No access to storage objects or the security configuration.

  • Monitor — Read-only access to all storage objects, but no access to the security configuration.


The Monitor role is required for all users, including the administrator.

If you are using an LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) server and Directory Services, make sure that:

  • An administrator has defined user groups in the directory service.

  • You know the group domain names for the LDAP user groups.
