Frequently asked questions
Users of BMC Server Automation can continue to organize content in the same way they do currently.
Access to content is based on roles in BMC Server Automation (BSA) and realms in BMC Network Automation (BNA). For BSA, each security group in the portal maps to a role in BMC Server Automation and grants the permissions assigned to that role. For BNA, each security group maps to a realm in BMC Network Automation. Users with access to a realm in BNA get the same permissions in the portal. Security groups in the portal should be set up to reflect role assignments in BSA or realms in BNA rather than the other way around.
If the other user belongs to the same portal security group as you, that user can see the output of your work. In addition, if the other user belongs to a role in BMC Server Automation and that role has the same permissions as your role, the other user can see the output of your work. Similarly, for BMC Network Automation, if the other user has access to the same realms as you, the other user can see the output of your work.
Customers should map out their use cases for BMC Server Automation (for example, patch, compliance, and so forth) along with the types of users that are involved in each use case. This list of users and roles should then be mapped to the functionality enabled through BladeLogic Portal. Using this list, a subset of users can be identified who might want to adopt the BladeLogic Portal to perform their day-to-day tasks. Broadly speaking, BMC Server Automation administrators will continue to use the BMC Server Automation Console to set up and configure the product. Another set of users will then also use the BMC Server Automation Console to create or manage the underlying content required to enable core use cases. Once that content is created, consumers of that content can use the BladeLogic Portal to execute use cases and review results.
