Setting up role-based access control

As a tenant administrator, you can use common services to set up role-based access control (RBAC) from a single place without the need for multiple configurations across products. You can access the common services from the Common services menu of the BMC Helix Portal console.

The common services help you set up local user access.  You can also can set up external user access and cross-product user access. For more information, see User identities.

Although, these common services are shared across the various integrated products, some of the integrated products manage RBAC on their own.

The following table provides a summary of how RBAC can be managed for different products:
