vRA Part-3: How to Create Local users in vRealize Automation

vRealize Automation works on the tenants so when you install the vRA you will have only one administrator account which is used in setup of tenant but for further configuration of tenant & Iaas we required to create local users as a tenant admin & IaaS admin for configuration of tenants, endpoints, reservations etc.

In this post we will create a single user & give that user permission as tenant admin & IaaS admin but in case of production environment you should go for proper user management where each user has specific roles assigned.

Step 1:
Login to vRA using the administrator account & the password which we set during the installation.
