Administering the Security Associations of a User Group

You can associate entities and roles to a CommCell user group or an external user group to control the operations that members of the group can perform on the entities.

Before You Begin

You must have the permissions described in Security Associations.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, select the user group:
    • CommCell user groups: go to Security > CommCell User Groups.
    • External groups: go to Security > Domains > domain > External Groups.
  2. Right-click the user_group, and click Properties.
  3. To add the security association do one of the following:
    • For CommCell user groups, in the User Group Properties dialog box on the Associations tab, click Add.
    • For external groups, in the Edit properties of External Group dialog box on the Associated Entities tab, click Add.
  4. In the Add Association dialog box 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.
