Import Servers - Permissions

The Permissions list is an access control list (ACL) granting roles access to any objects created in the system, such as jobs, servers, or depot objects. 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. For more information, see the following table:

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 object, 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.

Pushing agent ACLs

To push the agent ACLs defined for the imported servers, select Push agent ACLs to successfully imported servers. Selecting this option launches an ACL Push Job after servers have been successfully added to the system. For more information, see Creating ACL Push Jobs.
