  2. Click System Permissions.
  3. Click Add to open the Add System Permission to User window.

  5. Select the check boxes for the appropriate users or groups.
  6. Select an appropriate role to assign under Role to Assign. The UserRole role gives the user account the permission to log in to the VM Portal.
