Can not import user from Vmware Identity Manager

Hi All,

I added Vmware Identity Manager as an Authentication Source in vROPS 6.6.1.6163041. I cannot import users from vIDM so cannot give any permissions to any user. When i try to connect to VROPS through IDM, i can login but VROPS gives a default read-only permission to the user. How can i give permission to a user while using vIDM?

I have been trying to figure this out as well.  One thing I found is that once the vIDM user is created in vROps you can add that user to other local groups in vROps. So you can assign additional roles beyond read-only, but it would be nice to be able to assign roles prior to the first login.  I have to think that this functionality will be added if it isn't there already.

Yes you are correct. It seems this is the only way to give proper permissions to vIDM users. But it means i have to create a local group for every single vIDM user if i want to give different object permissions for different users. And every user which can authenticate via vIDM has read-only permission on vROPS.

Thank you.
