Configuration Management Security Role: Locations Tab

You can set permissions relating to managing locations, including viewing, creating and updating Locations.

Before you start

You must have Security Roles setup selected in the Admin tab of your own General Access security role before you can assign or remove permissions for any security roles.

  1. Display the Configuration Management Security Roles details window, if it is not already on screen.

  2. Assign the global permissions for the security role:

Disable CMDB Security

Analysts with this role have unlimited access to the CMDB, including the External Resource Search and Federated CMDB Admin options. Select this option to effectively turning off the granular security system for access to the CMDB. All CMDB items will open in edit mode, regardless of other permissions. Leave this deselected to assign specific permissions to the role.

External Resource Search

Analysts with this role can search for CMDB items from the External Resources Searchwindow. Analysts with this permission are restricted to a Cached Resource Search so searches can only return CMDB details that have been imported and not excluded from the Federated CMDB. This option also allows Analysts to view external resource data via the Linked Resources option.

Federated CMDB Admin

Analysts with this role can import CMDB Items from the External Resource Search window. They can also perform a Full Resource Search to search for Item Details within the CMDB which have not been imported into ASM Core, access the Federated CMDB Administration windows and access and process Discrepancy Reports through the CMDB Item Details Explorer option of the same name.

This option is only enabled if External Resource Search is selected.
