Creating user accounts and assigning user accounts to groups in BMC Atrium Single Sign-On

BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform supports the use of BMC Atrium Single Sign-On (ASSO) for existing ASSO users.


BMC Atrium Single Sign-On is not supported for use with BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform 7.9.01 and later versions.

ASSO provides basic user and group management features with the internal Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server. The ASSO administrator can create, delete, and manage users and group memberships in BMC Atrium Single Sign-On.

BMC Atrium Orchestrator (BAO) uses roles to authorize permission to BAO Platform components and content. While you assign user accounts to groups in ASSO, when granting permissions to BAO components and content, your ASSO groups must be aligned with the associated BAO roles. Create groups in ASSO with the same name as the roles you will use in BAO.


These instructions provide a general overview of creating user accounts and groups and assigning user accounts to roles in ASSO. For complete information on using ASSO, see the ASSO instructions:
