Add Users and Assign Roles for DSS App

After you set up the LDAP configuration for DPS Platform, you need to add users for the DSS app. During LDAP configuration, you added users and groups that can log in as DPS Admin. You must now assign roles to users and groups, which allow users to access the services that plug into DPS.

You must select the Data Steward role for accessing the Data Steward Studio Service. Users and groups should be assigned this role to access Data Steward Studio service. To enable the Data Steward Studio role, see Role Management section of the Data Plane Service Administration Guide.
User accounts must already exist within your corporate LDAP prior to adding the user to DPS Platform.

The DataPlane Admin role is required to perform this task.

  1. Log in to the DPS Platform.
  2. Click the (Users) icon in the DPS Platform navigation pane.
  3. On the Users and Groups page, click Add User.
  4. 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.


    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.

  5. Select the Data Steward role to assign to the user:

    Data Steward - Can perform all actions in the Data Steward Studio service UI, and can manage DSS-enabled clusters in DPS Platform.

  6. Click Save.

    You can log in and see Data Steward Studio service inside the DPS Platform. If Data Steward role is the only role assigned, you will be directed to the Data Steward Studio Service. If you have more roles assigned, you can select the Data Steward Studio Service in the navigation menu in the top left corner.

    If you assign the Data Steward role to yourself or to the group that you belong to, you must log out and log in again to verify that Data Steward Studio Service is available.
    The new user displays in the list on the Users page.
