Adding and managing access groups

You can enable access control to specific entities, such as domains, report groups, views, view groups, task groups, and cost pools, by using Access groups.

Use the Access groups page in the TrueSight Capacity Optimization console to view a summary of the currently defined access groups and to manage and assign access groups to user accounts.

To open the Access groups page, select Administration Users > Access groups. From this page you can add, delete, and configure an access group.

Adding a new access group

 You can add a new access group by performing the following steps:

  1. Click Add access group on the top of the table in the Access groups page and enter the following information:

    Name:Type unique name for the access group.
    DescriptionType brief description for the access group.
    Access group assignmentSelect any one:
    • Assign this access group by default to all users: To assign this access group to all users on their login.
    • Assign this access group automatically to external users having external group names matching the below list: To assign this access group to the external users that have external names matching with the names specified in the External names box. Users are assigned this access group on their login. When you select this option, the External names box is enabled.
    External namesIf you have external authentication (Remedy SSO or LDAP), you can specify the names of Remedy SSO or LDAP groups to associate with this access group, separated by a semi-colon (";"). For instance, if you specify BMC external users as the external name for an access group, all external users that have external name mapping to BMC external users will be automatically assigned the corresponding access group on logging in to TrueSight Capacity Optimization.

  2. Click Save.

Configuring an access group

You can configure an access group to specify the elements, such as domains, report groups, views, and view groups, that will be available to the members of an access group.

To configure an access group, follow these steps:

  1. Click the access group name in the Access groups table.
  2. On the Visible Entities table, click Edit, and select Edit domains, Edit report groupsEdit views and view groupEdit task groups, or Edit cost pools.
    info The Edit cost pools option is available only if  TrueSight Cloud Cost Control is installed and at least cost pool is created. 
    For information about the license entitlement for TrueSight Cloud Cost Control, see  License entitlements.

  3. Depending on the element selection in the previous step, select the specific element values.
  4. (Only for report groups) Select the Recurse on contained report groups check box if you want to import all the contained domains or report groups respectively. For Edit Views and view group select the Recurse on contained view groups check box.
  5. Click Save.
  6. (Optional) Repeat step 3 to step 5 to add another element to the access group.

Additional information

When editing an access group, you can delete single items or groups. Deleting a group also removes all its descendants. Similarly, if you create a sub-domain under one of the domains allowed by an access group, all members of the group will be able to access it.
