This topic describes how to manage the users associated with an environment. For information on providing Delphix users with privileges for groups and database objects, see the topics under Managing Users and Managing Policies.


Users that you add to an environment must meet the requirements for that environment as described in the platform-specific Requirements topics.


  1. Login to the Delphix Management application.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Select Environments.
  4. Click on the existing environment name you want to modify.
  5. In the Details tab under Basic Information, click the Plus icon next to Environment Users to add a user.
  6. Enter the Username and Password for the OS user in that environment.

  7. Select Add to save the new user.
  8. To change the primary user for this environment, click the Pencil icon next to Environment Users. Only the primary user will be used for environment discovery.
  9. To delete a user, click the Trash icon next to their username.

If you want to use public key encryption for logging into your Unix-based environment:
  1. Select Public Key for the Login Type.
  2. Click View Public Key.
  3. Copy the public key that is displayed, and append it to the end of your ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file. If this file does not exist, you will need to create it.
    1. Run chmod 600 authorized_keys to enable read and write privileges for your user.
    2. Run chmod 755 ~ to make your home directory writable only by your user.

The public key needs to be added only once per user and per environment.
