Add permissions for users that have been created using a VMware vCenter Single Sign-On (SSO) Identity Source.
- [Voiceover] In this video I'll demonstrate…how to add single sign-on users.…We'll be completing this lab using the Vmware…hands-on lab environment…using the vSphere with operations management six lab.…The first step is to log into the vSphere web client…as a single sign-on administrator.…This gives us the ability…to manage the configuration…and users that are included in single sign-on.…Under the administration menu,…we see our configuration options for single sign-on.…Let's click on users and groups…and create a new user.…
Here you can see the users that already exist…including the user that I'm logged in as…firstname.lastname@example.org.…These users are being created in the default identity source…of single sign-on…which is our vSphere.local domain.…This identity source is internal…to the single sign-on server.…We'll create a new user name,…a new password,…and we'll input a first name and last name…and hit OK.…
Now you can see a new user has been created…in my vSphere.local domain.…I haven't assigned any permissions to this user yet…
