Creating a Role

Creating a Role

The system uses roles to control operation permissions of objects. After a user is assigned a role, the user has the operation permissions of the role. The storage system provides typical default roles. If default roles cannot meet your requirements, you can create roles.


Only super administrators can create a role.


  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Settings > Permission Settings > Role Management.
  3. In the function pane, click Add.

    The Set Name dialog box is displayed.

  4. Configure a name, owning group, and description for the role. Table 3-4 describes related parameters.

    Table 3-4 Role parameters





    Name of a role



    Owning group

    The value can be System Group or vStore Group.

    • If a role belongs to System Group, its permissions are valid in the system view.
    • If a role belongs to vStore Group, its permissions are valid in the vStore view.

  7. Click Next. The Summary dialog box is displayed.
