Configuring authorization profiles

This topic provides instructions on creating, editing, and deleting authorization profiles.

To understand the concept of authorization profiles and how they can be useful, see Setting up access control.

Before you begin

  • You must have access to the user groups and objects to include in the authorization profile. 
  • User groups must be available to select during the creation of the authorization profile. Because objects are not a required component, you can create an authorization profile without them, and specify the objects at a later time. 

    User groups can be created in  BMC Helix Portal , imported and synced from an external identity provider (IdP), or synced from another BMC product. Imported and synced groups need to be assigned to relevant roles with permissions in  BMC Helix Portal . Additionally, these groups need to be assigned to the authorization profile. Only when users have the appropriate permissions via roles and authorization profiles, they can access BMC Helix Operations Management and perform the necessary functions. For more information, see User identities Open link and Setting up user groups Open link .
