Managing User Groups

Users of Network Virtualization are assigned to user groups. The user groups define the permissions that the users have within the NV Server and NV Test Manager.

  • Server Administrators. These users are permitted to perform all functionality that is available in both NV Test Manager and the NV Server.
  • Test Manager Administrators. These users have limited test management and user management permissions.
  • Testers. These users are permitted to manage and run their own tests, and to view a restricted set of server resources.

The functionality that is available to each user group is set when the NV Server is installed, and cannot be modified. You cannot add or delete user groups. For details on the permissions that are associated with each user group, in NV Server, click User Groups > Permissions.

Note: A user can be assigned to multiple user groups.
