    Answer

      

    Control-M/Enterprise Manager does not currently have a command line interface to Control-M/Enterprise Manager users or user permissions.

      

    While Control-M/Enterprise Manager doesn’t have CLI utility to manage accounts however the best way to manage users is by using LDAP authentication and assign LDAP groups to Control-M/Enterprise Manager account groups.

      

    If a user belongs to LDAP group it will get the Control-M/Enterprise Manager group privileges. In this the groups privileges are managed in Control-M and the users in LDAP.

    The enhancement QM002204436 has been opened to address this: enhancement of the security management, add a ctmuseradd and a ctmgrpadd command to the product
