Logging into Grid Manager and Repository Manager

The BMC Atrium Orchestrator Grid Manager (Grid Manager) component resides on the CDP server and enables you to monitor and manage a BMC Atrium Orchestrator environment. Grid Manager provides a user interface to add and maintain grids, peers, adapters, modules, and process schedules. You can use Grid Manager to manage module deployment and activation. You can also use Grid Manager to enable collection of metrics about grid and process performance.

The repository stores BMC Atrium Orchestrator content, such as adapters and workflow modules, in a central location. As the source of record, the repository is accessed by a multitude of users, including workflow developers, software testers, and system administrators. The repository enforces versioning and keeps a history of workflow modules through their revisions. It also offers role-based access control to ensure that users can access only the appropriate content. Each environment that you maintain, such as separate production and development environments, has its own repository. The Repository Manager, the user interface to the repository, enables you to manage and transfer content.

You log into Grid Manager or Repository Manager using a web browser.
