Portal users are automatically created the first time they log on to BladeLogic Portal. If a portal user is a member of more than one portal security group, the user inherits the combined rights of all those groups.
Typically, portal users do not need to be aware of their membership in portal security groups. The one action in the portal that does expose users to portal security groups is the creation of a new operation. In this case, the portal asks the user which portal security group they would like to use when creating the operation.
Selecting a portal security group when you define an operation also defines the BMC Server Automation role for which any underlying jobs may be created in BMC Server Automation. Portal security group selection also can define default job and depot folders and Deploy job templates.
To see a list of portal users, click Administration (at top right) and then click the Users tab.
