Part Number

You can customize a user group, as long as it supports your storage system.

This section explains how administrators can create a user group.

A user group name consists of 1 to 64 characters including alphanumeric characters, spaces, and the following symbols:

! # $ % & ' ( ) + - . = @ [ ] ^ _ ` { } ~

The system can support a maximum of 32 user groups, including the nine built-in user groups.
  • You must have the Security Administrator (View & Modify) role to perform this task.
  1. In the Administration tree, select User Groups.
  2. In the User Groups tab, click Create User Groups to open the Create User Group window.
  3. Enter a user group name.
  4. If you use an authorization server, click Check and verify that the entered user group name is registered in the authorization server.
  5. Click Next to open the Assign Roles window.
  6. Select the roles to assign to the user group, and click Add.
  7. Click Next to open the Assign Resource Groups window.
  8. Select the resource groups to assign to the user group, and click Add. If you select a role other than the storage administrator in the Assign Roles window, you do not need to select resource groups because all the resource groups are assigned automatically.
  9. Click Finish to finish and confirm settings.
    Click Next to add another user.
  10. Check the settings and enter a task name in Task Name.
  11. Click Apply. The task is now registered. If the Go to tasks window for status check box is checked, the Tasks window opens to show the status of the task.
