- Click the Add button.
- From the Auth Provider list, select the authentication method you want to use for this user. For this lab, we will leave the default selection local (Local) unchanged.
Important: A user must belong to a group or have an assigned role, or authentication will fail.
In the User Name field, type the user name for this new user. In the Full Name field, type a name to identify this user.Name: nsadminFull Name: Network Security Manager
In the Password and Confirm Password fields, type the password for this new locally-authenticated user.
Password: nsadmin Confirm Password: nsadmin
Scroll down the screen and select NSManager from the Available box of the Roles list and move it to the right in Selected box.
- You aren’t required to associate a user group at this point; you can do that later if you want.
User’s access to certain parts of the BIG-IQ user interface depends on which role they are assigned.
- Click the Save & Close button.
These users now have the privileges associated with the role(s) you selected.
Next, we will test the access privileges for the new user with the custom role.
