Introduction:

After initially install USS ,   you can login USS UI  as  casmadmin  and can see "Data Source"  so that you can do catalog and USS integration configuration  , also service desk and USS integration .  But after  USS is using EEM for authentication ,  you will no longer be able to login USS UI as casmadmin unless your LDAP has casmadmin.     

Question:

How grant user with the same privilege as casmadmin user is having in USS ?

Environment:
catalog 14.1 and catalog 17.0
Answer:

1) have EEM point to internal user store  so that you can use original casmadmin to login USS UI temporarily 
2 ) login http://<hostname>:8686/group/control_panel/ as casmadmin 
3) go to Portal -> Portal Settings -> Authentication -> EEM , they can see that EEM is enabled for authentication , and the application administrator group is specified as openspaceadmingroup  ( by default ) .  

So any user who belongs to that group " openspaceadmingroup" will get the USS administrator privilege .   In your LDAP ,  you will need to have a group called "openspaceadmingroup"   and have some users belong to this group .   Then ,  after your EEM is hooked up with LDAP ,  those users who belong to this group will be able to have the same privilege as casmadmin used to have .
