About Users and User Roles
Users are defined in the zCenter services portal, with credentials stored in the applicable corporate identity provider (IdP).
A User has zero or more defined User Roles; a User Role is a tag signifying group membership. Access Policies use User Roles to grant access to Applications, Services, or to servers via built-in secure access methods.
Users and User Roles have global scope within the tenant, and once defined can granted access across multiple App Profiles.

To use the external identity provider, ensure that "Authentication Type" is set to "External".
You may associate a user with a specific client device (defined by hostname / MAC address) to require that the user use a specific device when logging in.
Deleting a User
To delete a user, simply click on the trash can icon corresponding to the user to be deleted.
