User permissions

There are several user accounts that you must create to install the product and use embedded and external databases.

Installation program rights and permission requirements

When you run the installation program, you must be logged on to the destination computer as one of the following types of users.

  • Linux and Solaris: root or a user with root rights and permissions
  • Windows: administrator or a user with administrator rights and permissions

Following installation, each server component must run with the same user permissions.

Audit and metric external database permission requirements

You use Grid Manager to set up the connection to the audit and metric external databases by using the database vendor's JDBC drivers. One of the require database connection parameters is a user name which must already exist within the target database environment. This user must have following generic permissions on the target database schema for both the audit and metric configurations to work successfully.

Audit and metric external database permissions

For the initial configuration of audit and metric external database connections and the subsequent upgrade of BMC Atrium Orchestrator components across service packs and versions, the database user must have the following permissions:

  • Create Table
  • Create Index
  • Create Foreign Key Constraint
  • Create Sequences (Oracle, or the equivalent)

Grid management and job execution permissions

For grid management and job execution which might insert, update, or delete data into the audit and metric tables, the database user must have the following permissions:

  • Select
  • Insert
  • Update
  • Delete

It is the database administrator's responsibility to ensure that the user configured within the BMC Atrium Orchestrator audit and metric database configurations has the required permissions.

Repository database permissions

For both the embedded and external repository databases to work successfully, the user must have the following permissions:

  • Create Session
  • Create Table
  • Create Index
  • Create Foreign Key Constraint
  • Create Sequences (Oracle, or the equivalent)

Adapters, modules, and run books rights and permission requirements

For information about the user permissions required for the adapters, modules, and run books, see the corresponding documentation.
