Ops Manager Access

To access an Ops Manager organization or the project within that organization, an Ops Manager user must be a member of that organization. Depending on the user’s role in the organization, the Ops Manager user may also need to be a member of the project to access a project.

An Ops Manager user can be a member of multiple projects and multiple organizations. If an Ops Manager user is a member of a project, the user’s access to the project is determined their role in the project.

Within an organization, you can group users into teams. Users can belong to multiple teams. Teams can be assigned to multiple projects. The team’s project role sets the team members’ access to the project.

Note

Ops Manager users are separate from MongoDB users.

To edit roles through Ops Manager, for the project:

1

Navigate to the Users tab for your organization.

  1. If it is not already displayed, select your desired organization from the office icon Organizations menu in the navigation bar.
  2. Click Access Manager in the sidebar, or click Access Manager in the navigation bar, then click your organization.

To assign roles through an LDAP server, you must set up LDAP integration and create LDAP groups for your Ops Manager roles. You must also have the permissions described in Edit a User’s or Team’s Role in a Project.

For LDAP authentication, the welcome form includes the ability to assign LDAP groups to the Ops Manager group-level and global roles.

  1. Configure LDAP authentication.
  2. Create groups on your LDAP server for each of the available Ops Manager group-level and global roles.

To assign LDAP groups to Ops Manager roles:

  1. Click the Admin link at the top right of the Ops Manager page.
  2. Click General and then click Projects.
  3. Click the pencil icon at the far right of a group name. Edit the Roles interface by adding the appropriate LDAP group name to its corresponding Ops Manager group name.

Because Ops Manager does not update role assignments stored in your LDAP server, assign roles by assigning users to groups in your LDAP server.
