Comments 6 Posted In Red Hat Virtualization How to create a new user (other than admin) in RHV-M GUI to access api? Latest response 2017-09-27T06:32:14+00:00 Hi, I have deployed RHV 4.1 in my lab. Now, I want to create a user (other than existing admin user) to access RHV-M GUI as well as api. Please explain me how to do this. Thanks.

[USERS AND ROLES] (https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_virtualization/4.1/html/administration_guide/chap-users_and_roles) use ''ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool'' command [root@rhv4-m ~]# ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool user add user1 --attribute=firstName=user1 adding user user1... user added successfully Note: by default created user cannot log in. see: /usr/bin/ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool user password-reset --help. and password reset [root@rhv4-m ~]# ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool user password-reset user1 --password=pass:redhat updating user user1... user updated successfully now you can login RHV-M GUI interface. Guru 1425 points 27 September 2017 5:29 AM Siem Korteweg You have answered the question on how to create a user via the the command line. The original question is how to create a user in (via) the RHV-M Gui. Active Contributor 180 points 27 September 2017 6:13 AM KangWoo Lee yes. you right. but that GUI function can't add a new internal user. st Active Contributor 207 points 27 September 2017 6:18 AM stovpo Hello Siem I believe KangWoo Lee is correct. As far as I know it's a 2 step procedure. At least this is how I did it. We needed an internal user for virt-who. ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool user add virt-who --attribute=description='Virt-who user for Satellite' --attribute=firstName=virt-who Set password and 'valid to' (just an example) ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool user password-reset virt-who --password-valid-to="2016-01-22 23:30:53Z" Check the newly added account ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool user show virt-who After this procedure I added the user via the WEB UI and gave role accordingly to function. In this case ReadOnlyAdmin. Guru 1425 points 27 September 2017 6:32 AM Siem Korteweg I should have mentioned that my answer requires a RHV-M connected to AD/Kerberos. In that case it is a single step procedure. When your RHV-M is not connected to AD or you require an internal user, you indeed first need to create an internal user. Close Welcome!
