Assign users to groups
Depending on your installation/migration scenario and security configuration, you may already have the required users, and they may already be assigned to the correct groups.
To continue our example, we show how to create new users and assign them to the groups. Appropriate group membership automatically endows the user with the required role.
The following steps demonstrate how to create the necessary users and assign them to user groups in Data Visualization.
- On the main navigation bar, click Gear the icon.
- Select Users & Groups
- In the Manage Users & Groups interface, click New User.
In the New User modal window, enter the following
- Name: John_Marketing
- Password: password of your choice.
- Permissions: Select Normal user.
- Under Groups tab, select Data Admin and Marketing.
Click Add to move these groups to the right column, and then
Note that in this process, we will not assign users to roles directly, but through the group membership only.
Repeat the previous steps to create new users and assign groups to them, according to
the following information. This is a minimal set of users that 'populates' each role. We
can have multiple users assigned to the same groups.

After completing these steps, check the list of users, and notice that it shows the assigned roles. This is because we completed the group-role mapping already, as described in Assigning groups to roles.
