Administering the Security Associations of a User

You can associate entities and roles to a user to control the operations that the user can perform on the entities.

Before You Begin

You must have the permissions described in Security Associations.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, go to Security > CommCell User.

  2. Right-click the user, and then click Properties.

    The User Properties dialog box is displayed.

  3. On the Associated Entities tab, click Add.

    The Add Association dialog box is displayed.

  4. Under Entities, select entities.

    Tip: If you cannot find the entity, expand the corresponding entity node and then enter the entity name in the Find field.

  5. Under Role, in the Please select Role box, do one of the following:

    • Select an existing role.

      Note: The permissions listed for the selected role are read-only. To add or delete permissions defined for the role, see Editing a Role.

    • To create a role, click Create Role.

      For instructions on creating a role, see Creating a Role.

    • To add permissions without creating a role, click Custom Role and then select permissions directly from the permissions list.

  6. Click OK.
