As part of user management, this article deals with the following topics:

Skills Builder allows you to add, edit, delete and deactivate users so that they can create, edit and test bots and skills in the Skills Builder UI, as well as leverage the Agent Chat Console and chat with Luma. If the Intelligent Service Management (ISM) or CA Service Desk Manager (SDM) Connector is configured, users are synced to the Luma platform automatically. Administrator can manage and add Luma specific roles such as Administrator, Developer, Analyst and Self Service User. Each role has specific permissions to use the Skills Builder. For details, see the Define Roles and Permissions page. To reduce the effort spent by the Administrator on creating users and assigning them skills, Administrator can assign the users to groups and then assign the common skills to the groups. For details, see /wiki/spaces/CloudITSM/pages/935363056.

As the Skills Builder Administrator, if you want to add some Luma specific users, you can manage their roles and permissions in the Skills Builder. Skills Builder Administrator can modify the roles and permissions of users synced from the ITSM system. The modified user roles remain the same in the Skills Builder irrespective of the roles and permissions defined in ITSM. For example, if an Analyst user role changes to Administrator in Luma, then it will not be synced back to the connected ITSM system. In case the user's name changes in ITSM, then the change reflects in Luma as well, when it syncs with the ITSM system. However, if the user's name is changed in Luma, it will be overridden during the next ITSM user sync. For more details on syncing the ITSM users with Luma, visit Synchronize Users from CA SDM and ISM. On the Settings page, click the User Management tab to manage users. The User Management list appears as shown below.

    System prompts to confirm the delete action.

  2. Click Delete to continue, else click Cancel to discard the action.

Assign Skills to Users

An Administrator can assign skills to individual users. This gives them user level access to execute those skills. Assigning skills to users is done when a user needs exclusive access to a skill. Note that skill execution depends on the user’s role and their assigned skills. Therefore a user may be assigned to a skill but not have the Role that allows skill execution, and vice versa; a user may be in the correct Role, but may not be assigned access to the skill.

When the Administrator assigns skills to a user, then the skill is removed from the Default Public Group. The Default Public Group is an out-of-the-box group that contains all skills and all users. All newly created skills are added to this group by default. This simplifies access by ensuring that everyone has access to the existing skills and any newly created skills. To learn more, see /wiki/spaces/CloudITSM/pages/935363056. New groups can be created for a set of users and the required skills can be assigned to all the users. However, sometimes only a few users from the group may need access to a set of skills. In such case, Administrator can assign the required skills to the users individually. To assign a skill to a user:

  1. In the user management list, select the users to whom one or more skills need to be assigned as shown below.

    a. You can search for the required user from the users list by entering the username, email ID or Name and press Enter.

  2. Click Assign Skills.
    The Assign Skills pop-up window appears as shown below.

  3. Select the skills to be assigned to the user.

  4. Click Assign to assign the skill(s) to the selected user(s).


View Assigned and Derived Skills

An Administrator can assign skills to individual users and groups from User and Group Management. Skills are grouped into Assigned and Derived Skills in User Management.

Assigned Skills 

The skills that are assigned directly to a user, those skills are listed under Assigned Skills.

Derived Skills.

The skills that are assigned directly to groups including Default public group are known as Derived Skills. Since a user can be part of multiple groups, you can filter skills based on the required group.

  • Select the Derived Skills tab to view the derived skills.
  • To filter skills based on group, select the required group from the Select Group list.

Manage User Roles and Permissions

As part of user roles and permissions, different user roles have different permission levels in Luma to effectively manage the various functions. For more details, see Define Roles and Permissions.
