Assigning a User Roles for Specific Asset Groups

Ops Center's roles give you, as an administrator, a lot of fine-grained control over what each user can do. I heard a question recently that demonstrates this pretty well:

"Is it possible to set up a user defined Group and have a User Role restricted to only have specific roles for this group only?"

Yep. To do this, you select the user from the list in the Admin section and click Manage User Roles to bring up the wizard.


To assign a role to a specific group, you deselect the "Use the default Role associations" option. Then, when you go on to the next step, it lets you select which groups the role applies to:


In this case, the user will have the Asset Admin role only for the Example group. They'll be able to take all of the Asset Admin actions for the assets in that group.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Managing Users and Roles

Ops Center gives you fine-grained control over your users and the tasks that they can carry out.

You can add users to Ops Center either from the local filesystem on the Enterprise Controller, or import them from an external directory server.

You can then give each user a set of roles. Each role gives the user permission to carry out specific tasks. For example, the Report Admin role lets a user run reports and simulate update jobs; the Asset Admin role lets a user discover, manage, and group assets; and the Ops Center Admin role lets a user do anything.

You can also manage the role associations for a user's roles, controlling what targets they apply to. So, you could give a user the Asset Admin role, but then apply it only to a specific group of assets. That user could then manage those assets, but no others.

The User and Role Management chapter in the Admin Guide explains how to add users and directory servers and assign roles to those users.
