Creating and Managing Ops Manager User Accounts

Page last updated:

Pivotal Cloud Foundry supports multiple user accounts in Ops Manager. A User Account and Authentication (UAA) module co-located on the Ops Manager VM manages access permissions to Ops Manager.

When Ops Manager boots for the first time, you create an admin user. However, you do not create additional users through the Ops Manager web interface. If you want to create additional users who can log into Ops Manager, you must use the UAA API, either through curl or the UAA Command Line Client (UAAC).

Note: You can only manage users on the Ops Manager UAA module if you chose to use Internal Authentication instead of an external Identity Provider when configuring Ops Manager.

Follow these steps to add or remove users via the UAAC. If you do not already have the UAAC installed, run gem install uaac from a terminal window.

Adding Users to Ops Manager

  1. Target your Ops Manager UAA:
    $ uaac target https://YOUR-OPSMAN-FQDN/uaa/
  2. Get your token:
    $ uaac token owner get
    Client ID: opsman
    Client Secret: [Press Enter]
    Username: Admin
    Password: *******
     
    Successfully fetched token via client credentials grant.
    Target https://YOUR-OPSMAN-FQDN/uaa/
    
  3. Add a user:
    $ uaac user add YOUR-USER-NAME -p YOUR-USER-PASSWORD --emails YOUR-USER-EMAIL@EXAMPLE.COM

Removing Users from Ops Manager

  1. Target your Ops Manager UAA:
    $ uaac target https://YOUR-OPSMAN-FQDN/uaa/
  2. Get your token:

    $ uaac token owner get
    Client ID: opsman
    Client Secret: [Press Enter]
    Username: Admin
    Password: *******
     
    Successfully fetched token via client credentials grant.
    Target https://YOUR-OPSMAN-FQDN/uaa/
