Users and user groups added to an Access Role are not saved in SmartDashboard in the following scenario:
- Open Access Role object
- Go to the "Users" tab - select "Specific users/groups" - add a user / group
- Click on OK
- Open Access Role object - users / user groups that were added are not shown anymore
Note: If after click on OK, administrator just saves the changes (go to "File" menu - click on "Save"), then the added users / user groups are saved correctly in the management database (can be verified by connecting with GuiDBedit Tool to Security Management Server / Domain Management Server:
Other - identity_roles - users - specific_identity_users).
Users / user groups are identified as "Specific users" in Access Role object in "Role Preview" section.
SmartDashboard might crash when validating the Access Role assignment.
When users/groups/machines to Access Role in SmartDashboard, MD5 hash algorithm is used.
MD5 hash algorithm does not comply with FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic algorithms.
