Access Management overview

Contributors netapp-jolieg netapp-ivanad

Access Management is a method of configuring user authentication in Unified Manager.

What authentication methods are available?

The following authentication methods are available:

  • Local user roles — Authentication is managed through RBAC (role-based access control) capabilities. Local user roles include pre-defined user profiles and roles with specific access permissions.

  • Directory services — Authentication is managed through an LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) server and directory service, such as Microsoft's Active Directory.

  • SAML — Authentication is managed through an Identity Provider (IdP) using SAML 2.0.
