Working with security groups

This topic provides instructions on adding and editing security groups. 

To understand the concept of security groups, see Security groups

Adding a security group

On the Administration > Security Groups page, click Add and do these steps:

  1. Select a role from the Group Name field, and add an optional description. 
    The roles available in TrueSight Server Automation appear in the list. 
    The Server Automation Connector field shows the host name of the TrueSight Server Automation application server.
  2. In the Default Depot Path field, enter the default location in Server Automation where you want to store the depot items.
    Depot items generated by users in this group get stored in this location.
    In BMC Helix Automation Console (SaaS) and TrueSight Automation Console (on-premises) version 20.02.01 only, you can also click Browse and select a folder from the list of Depot Paths. 
  3. In the Default Job Path field, enter the default location in Server Automation where you want to store jobs. 
    Jobs created by users in this group get stored in this location. 
    In BMC Helix Automation Console (SaaS) and TrueSight Automation Console (on-premises) version 20.02.01 only, you can also click Browse and select a folder from the list of Job Paths.  
  4. Click Add.  

The security group is added and is displayed on the Manage Security Groups page. 

Viewing a list of security groups

On the Administration > Security Groups page, you can view all the groups in Automation Console. Information such as the name, description, connector type, and the connector host and port details are displayed. 

Editing a security group

After a security group is added, you can only make changes to the description, default depot and job paths where the depot items and jobs are to be saved in Server Automation. You cannot update the role for a security group.

On the Administration > Security Groups page, click Edit against the security group, make changes, and click Update
