BMC Atrium CMDB data permissions for classes and attributes

This topic discusses how to specify permissions on BMC Atrium CMDB data at both the class and attribute level.

Class permissions on BMC Atrium CMDB data

You can specify which explicit groups and roles have the following permissions on each class:

  • Hidden — Members of these groups and roles can access the class through workflow, but cannot see its instances in the BMC Atrium Explorer or open its form with a web client.
  • Visible — Members of these groups and roles can see and access the class in all ways: instances in the BMC Atrium Explorer, the class form with a web client, and through workflow.

You specify class permissions from the Permissions tab when viewing a class in the Class Manager. For more information, see Setting class permissions in the Class Manager.

Warning

Do not use BMC Remedy Developer Studio to change permissions on the class forms. These permissions are overwritten the next time a change is made to the class with the Class Manager.

Class permissions are equivalent to BMC Remedy AR System form permissions. For more information about BMC Remedy AR System form permissions, see Form, active link guide, and application permissions .

Attribute permissions on BMC Atrium CMDB data

You can specify which explicit groups and roles have the following permissions on each attribute:

  • View — Members of these groups and roles can view the attribute in the class form, but cannot modify its value.
  • Change — Members of these groups and roles can view and modify the attribute value.

You can also specify that a user without Change permissions can set the attribute's value when creating an instance. To do so, select Allow Any User to Submit.

You specify attribute permissions from the Permissions tab when viewing an attribute (in the Attributes dialog box) from the Class Manager. For more information, see Class attributes in the Class Manager.

Warning

Do not use BMC Remedy Developer Studio to change permissions on the attribute fields. These permissions are overwritten the next time a change is made to the class with the Class Manager.

Attribute permissions are equivalent to BMC Remedy AR System field permissions. For more information about BMC Remedy AR System field permissions, see  Field permissions
