Managing User Groups

Updated at: Oct 21, 2021 GMT+08:00


FusionInsight Manager supports 5000 user groups (including built-in user groups) at the maximum. You can create and manage different user groups based on service scenarios on FusionInsight Manager. A user group is bound to a role to obtain operation rights. After a user is added to a user group, the user group can obtain the operation rights of the user group. A user group can be used to classify users and manage multiple users.


  • You have learned service requirements and created roles required by service scenarios.
  • Log in to FusionInsight Manager.

Adding a User Group

  1. Choose System > Permission > User Group.
  2. Above the user group list, click Create User Group.

    Figure 1 Create User Group

  3. Set Group Name and Description.

    A group name consists of letters, digits, underlines (_), hyphens(-), or spaces. A group name can contain 1 to 64 characters. It is case insensitive. It cannot be the same as the group name in the system.

  4. In the Role area, click Add to select a role and add it.

    • For components (except HDFS and Yarn) for which Ranger authorization has been enabled, the rights of non-default roles on Manager do not take effect. You need to configure Ranger policies to assign rights to user groups.
    • If the policy conditions of HDFS and Yarn resource requests in Ranger are not covered, the component ACL rules still take effect.

  5. In the User area, click Add to select a user and add it.
  6. Click OK.

    The user group is created.
