Managing users and settings

You manage user accounts through their user settings. The most important setting is a user role, which determines which tasks the user can perform. The user role is defined by membership in a group, whose members all receive the same set of permissions. For more information, see User roles and Managing roles and access restrictions

You can access user settings through the System tab. For information, see Managing user settings.

Users should be authenticated through an external user database, such as LDAP or Microsoft Active Directory (MSAD). However, by default, you are authenticated with the local BMC Release Package and Deployment database. You must configure the system to connect to your user database. For more information about configuring these options, see Configuring LDAP authentication and Configuring MSAD authentication. For configuring any local users, see Configuring local authentication.

A special user, the _system user, has a set of preferences that define system-wide properties. For more information, see Managing system settings.

You can view the system records of the user actions by generating a user history report under Deployment on the Report tab. For more information, see Creating and running reports.
