Add New Server - Permissions

The Permissions panel provides an access control list (ACL) granting roles access to any objects created in the system, such as jobs, servers, or depot objects. This panel also lets you preview and push the ACLs assigned to this server.

ACLs control access to all objects, including the sharing of objects between roles.

Using the Permissions panel, you can add individual permissions to an object. You can also set permissions by adding ACL templates or ACL policies.

The following table describes the options associated with this panel.

TaskDescription

Adding an authorization

An authorization grants permission to a role to perform a certain type of action on this object.

To add an authorization to this object, click Add Entry  in the Access Control List area. Then use the Add New Entry dialog box to specify the role and authorization you want to add.

Adding an ACL template

An ACL template is a group of predefined authorizations granted to roles. Using an ACL template, you can add a group of authorizations to the object.

To add an ACL template to the job, click Use ACL Template  in the Access Control List area. Then use the Select ACL Template dialog box to specify an ACL template that you want to add to this object.

To set the contents of the selected ACL templates so they replace all entries in the access control list, check Replace ACL with selected templates. If you do not check this option, the contents of the selected ACL templates are appended to existing entries in the access control list.

Adding an ACL policy

An ACL policy is a group of authorizations that can be applied to this object but can be managed from one location.

To add an ACL policy to this object, click Use ACL Policy  in the ACL Policies area. Then use the Select ACL Policy dialog box to specify an ACL policy that you want to add to the object.

To set the contents of the selected ACL policies so they replace all entries in the access control list, check Replace ACL with selected policies. If you do not check this option, the contents of the selected ACL policies are appended to existing entries in the access control list.

Previewing agent ACLs

The ACLs you define on this panel can be assigned to the agent that is installed on this server. To preview those ACLs, click Agent ACLs Preview. The Agent ACL Preview window opens. It displays the ACLs defined for this server. ACLs are based on the authorizations and other information currently defined for the roles granted access to this server. The Agent ACL Preview window presents this information in the form of a users configuration file that is applied to the RSCD agent on this server. For more information about using this window, see Previewing and pushing agent ACLs. For detailed information about agent ACLs, see Agent ACL description.

Pushing agent ACLs

You can push the agent ACLs defined for this server by clicking Push agent ACLs. Selecting this option launches an ACL Push Job after this server has been added to the system. For more information, see Creating ACL Push Jobs.
