OpsCenter 4.0 User Guide

Assigning or modifying user access roles

The first time you assign an access role to an administrator or user, OpsCenter generates a password file and enables access control. Authentication is required to access OpsCenter for viewing objects and performing tasks.

To create or modify access roles:


  1. Run the set_passwd.py utility.
    For example, to create user johndoe with admin role privileges:
    $ python /usr/share/opscenter/bin/set_passwd.py johndoe admin
    Please enter a password  for 'johndoe'.
  2. After configuring authentication, restart OpsCenter.
    $ service opscenterd restart
    Restarting is required only when you create the first user (because it enables access control). No restart is required for adding, modifying, or removing users.
