Property authorization updates for SP1

BMC Server Automation version 8.2 SP1 provides a more consistent approach to the authorizations needed to modify properties.

  • To modify any type of property except a user-created property, you must have a Modify authorization. For example, to modify the SERVER.STAGING_DIR property, you must have the Server.Modify authorization.
  • To modify a user-created property for a built-in property class, you must have the ModifyProperties authorization. For example, if your organization has created a SERVER.BUSINESS_UNIT property, you need the Server.ModifyProperties authorization to change that property.
  • To modify a property for a custom property class, you must have the PropertyInstance.Modify authorization.

The new requirements for authorizations result in the following changes from earlier releases:

  • Changing the NAME or DESCRIPTION property for any object previously required both the Modify and ModifyProperties authorizations. That action now requires only the Modify authorization.
  • Changing any of the following properties previously required the ModifyProperties authorization. That action now requires the Modify authorization.
