Creating or modifying a user

You cannot add a user in Active Directory Delegate Mode. Only the Active Directory Security Administrator can perform this action.

Tip

Copy a user if the user has a group membership similar to the user you want to create. Use the Copy a user feature and modify user settings as needed.
  1. Click Add User on the Security tab and toolbar to open the User Settings dialog box.
  2. Enter the required information.

    Permissions as set by Group membership

    User

    Cumulative permissions for this user based on group membership. This list is not editable on the User Settings screen.

    User Name

    User

    The length of the user name is not limited by TrueSight Middleware and Transaction Monitor, and BMC recommends that you select user names that mirror your existing system user names.

    You can also use first and last names as the user name. The user name is stored in quotes to allow for spaces.

  3. You can add one or more groups to this user or you can save the user without adding a group list. The user has no access permissions until the user is part of a group.

When you add a group to the user list, the group's permissions are applied to the user. You cannot change group permissions in the User Settings dialog box. To modify a user's permissions, you need to change the permissions in the user's groups. Changes to the group's permissions are applied to all user members.
