A custom package containing the user and role and export the package to the required location.

The package must contain the selected user, the roles that are assigned to them, and also the roles assignments (the association between a user and a role).

Select each of these entities in the Resource Selection tab of the Edit Package dialog box, under Administration.

When the Role Assignments is selected in the left pane, all available combinations of user and assigned roles are displayed in the right pane. If a user has more than one role assigned, you must include each role and each role assignment in the package, to retain the user's permissions.

If the users and the roles already exist on the target UCMDB instance, you can export a package containing only the relevant roles assignments.
