How to Modify a User's RBAC Properties by Using the User Accounts Tool

Before You Begin

To modify a user's properties, you must run the User Tool Collection as root user or assume a role that has the System Administrator rights profile assigned to it.

  1. Start the User Accounts tool.

    To run the user accounts tool, start the Solaris Management Console, as described in Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 . Open the User Tool Collection and click the User Accounts icon.

    After the User Accounts tool starts, the icons for the existing user accounts are displayed in the view pane.

  2. Click the User Account icon to be changed and select Properties from the Action menu (or double-click the user account icon).
  3. Click the appropriate tab in the dialog box for the property to be changed, as follows:
    • To change the roles that are assigned to the user, click the Roles tab and move the role assignment to be changed to the appropriate column: Available Roles or Assigned Roles.

    • To change the rights profiles that are assigned to the user, click the Rights tab and move it to the appropriate column: Available Rights or Assigned Rights.

      Note - Avoid assigning rights profiles directly to users. The preferred approach is to require users to assume roles in order to perform privileged applications. This strategy discourages users from abusing privileges.
