Hello, I created a custom role in PC to allow users to manage and create VMs. However, I am unable to add users into the custom role and it seems that it cannot even find the user that I created when I’m at the new user section. I’ve seen in some video tutorials that it will suggest a user once you start typing in the name but in my case it kept saying No results.

Just for added info, I am able to login to the new user that I created.

Hi @AllenE 

We do not support Local users with role assignment at this time, unfortunately. They are still supported with Role Mappings but that does not give you the granularity the role assignment does.

Hi @AllenE 

Is this what you’re doing? https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=Nutanix-Security-Guide-v5_19:ssp-ssp-role-assignment-pc-t.html

What is the PC version?

Hi @Alona 

Yes this what I am trying to do but it doesn’t detect the local user that I created. The PC version is 2020.11

When you say that it doesn't detect the user is it that it does not find the user that you type in? What if you try and search for the user in the list manually?

I’m asking to better understand the issue that you are facing.

Also, I assume the user is as local user?

Yes, it doesn’t find the user when I type in.

What if you try and search for the user in the list manually? - I can see the user in the list and I can also login if that’s what you meant.

Yes, it’s a local user.

Just figured to include some screenshots for better understanding of my issue.

created a local account called “localuser”
the account is active and can be searched within prism central

 

 

localuser is not found if I add it in the custom role I created. I’ve also tried in adding in the built-in roles but same result.
tried to ignore the “No results” error but getting the Invalid ACP when applied.

Thank you for the screenshots. I was able to reproduce the issue. Waiting on the response internally. Will get back to you as soon as I have anything.

 Hi @Alona 

So this means that I can only add a user into a Role if that user was synced from directory services like AD? If I create a local user account, the role/permission that I can grant are User Admin, Cluster Admin or Viewer?

You got it right @AllenE
