Assigning people to Java EE roles

Assign roles for HCL Connections users on WebSphere® Application Server.

You can add groups as well as individual users to roles. The advantage of assigning a group to a role is that you can add and remove members of the group without having to edit your WebSphere Application Server configuration. Editing the group at the directory level makes administration easier when you have to add, modify, or remove administrators. You can still add and remove individual users in your WebSphere Application Server configuration if necessary.

For definitions of the different roles, see the Roles topic.

  1. To assign a person or group to a role, complete the following steps:
  2. From the WebSphere Application Server Integrated Solutions Console, expand Applications > Application Types and then select WebSphere enterprise applications. Find and click the link to the application that you want to configure.

  3. Click Security role to user/group mapping. Find the role that you want to add users to.

  4. Select the role that you want to assign and click Map users or Map groups.

  5. In the Search String box, type the name of the person or group that you would like to assign to this role, and then click Search. If the user or group exists in the directory, it is displayed in the Available list.

  6. Select the user or group name from the Available box and move it into the Selected box by clicking Add.

  7. To add more users to the role, repeat Steps 4 and 5.

  8. Click OK.

  9. To map a user or group to a different role for another application, repeat steps 1–7.

  10. Click OK and then click Save to save them.

  11. Synchronize and restart all instances of WebSphere Application Server.
