A role must be defined in the Roles Manager portlet before it can be assigned to a user.

You can assign roles to an existing Teradata Viewpoint user account. If your Teradata Viewpoint portal is configured to use auto-provisioning, a user account is created automatically the first time a user logs on to Teradata Viewpoint. By default, auto-provisioned accounts are authenticated externally and assigned a default role. The LDAP authentication source and default role are set in the LDAP Servers portlet.

When assigning multiple roles to the same user, you can set role priority.

  1. From the Users view, browse the list of users or use the filters to find users.
  2. Click a user name.
  3. Click the Roles tab. Available roles are listed in the Available Roles pane. Roles assigned to the user are shown in the Selected Roles pane.
  4. Select a role from the Available Roles pane or select multiple roles by pressing Shift or Ctrl.
  5. Click . The selected roles appear in the Selected Roles pane.
  6. [Optional] Change the role priority to be applied to the default portlet settings for a role when a user is assigned multiple roles. For more information, see Setting the Priority of Default Portlet Settings for a Role.
  7. Click Apply.
