New-SCUserRole

Updated: April 29, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

New-SCUserRole

Creates a user role for a group of VMM users.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
New-SCUserRole [-Name] <String> -UserRoleProfile <Profile> {Administrator | DelegatedAdmin | TenantAdmin | SelfServiceUser | ReadOnlyAdmin} [-Description <String> ] [-ID <Guid> ] [-JobGroup <Guid> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-ParentUserRole <UserRole> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The New-SCUserRole cmdlet creates a user role for a group of Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) users. You can create the following user roles: Delegated Administrator, Read-Only Administrator, and Self-Service user. Only one Administrator role exists; you cannot create another Administrator role or delete the existing one.

If you are a member of a Delegated Administrator user role, you can create a user role. However, the scope of the new user role must be a subset of the scope of its parent user role.

After you create a user role, you can use the Set-SCUserRole cmdlet to rename the user role, to add or remove members, and to add or modify the scope of objects that members of the role can manage. For a Self-Service user role, you can specify which actions members of a Self-Service user role can take on their virtual machines, and you can define a quota that limits the number of virtual machines Self-Service users can create. Although you cannot create or remove the Administrator role or limit its scope, you can use Set-SCUserRole to add or remove members to that role.

For information about setting the properties of a user role, type Get-Help Set-SCUserRole -detailed.

This command creates a delegated administrator user role named ContosoDelegatedAdmin, provides the description Delegated Administrators for the Contoso.com domain, and uses the UserRoleProfile parameter to designate the user role type as Delegated Administrator.


PS C:\> New-SCUserRole -Name "ContosoDelegatedAdmin" -Description "Delegated Administrators for the Contoso.com domain" -UserRoleProfile "DelegatedAdmin"

Example 2: Create a Self-Service user role

This command creates a new user role named ContosoSelfServiceUsers, uses the UserRoleProfile parameter to designate the new user role type as Self-Service user, and then stores the new user role object in the $SelfServiceRole variable.


PS C:\> $SelfServiceRole = New-SCUserRole -Name "ContosoSelfServiceUsers" -UserRoleProfile "SelfServiceUser"
