Add Users and Assign Roles for the DAS App
After you set up the LDAP configuration for DP Platform, you need to add users for the DAS app. During the LDAP configuration, you add users and groups that can log in as a DP admin. You must now assign roles to users and groups that allow the users to access the services that plug into DataPlane.
The DataPlane Admin role is required to perform this task.
- Log in to the DP Platform.
- Click the (Users) icon in the DP Platform navigation pane.
- On the Users and Groups page, click Add User.
Enter the name of the user.
With your own LDAP server, the user must already exist within your corporate LDAP. If you are using the packaged LDAP, enter one of the predefined users (guest, sam, tom). The name auto-populates as you type.Tip
You must click the name of the user when it displays and ensure it appears in the Username field on a dark background.
If the name appears on a white background, it means the name is not recognized and the action fails.
Select the Data Analytics Studio User role to assign to the user.
With the Data Analytics Studio User role, you can perform all actions in the Data Steward Studio service UI and also manage DAS-enabled clusters in the DP Platform.
You can log in and see service inside the DP Platform. If Data Anlaytics Studio User role is the only role assigned, you will be directed to the Data Analytics Studio Service. If you have more roles assigned, you can select the Data Analytics Studio Service in the navigation menu in the top left corner.NoteIf you assign the Data Analytics Studio User role to yourself or to the group that you belong to, you must log out and log in again to verify that Data Analytics Studio Service is available.The new user displays in the list on the Users page.
