An organization administrator is the only one who can add users and groups to an organization. The organization administrator assigns each user or group a role within the organization. Your role controls what you can see and do in vCloud Director.

An organization administrator can create local user accounts within an organization or import users and groups from an LDAP server. Contact your system administrator to set up an LDAP connection.
