IT Data Analytics uses role-based access control (RBAC) to restrict access to objects–data collectors, data patterns, external configurations, notifications, and so on.

This mechanism provides the following benefits:

  • Ensures that only authorized users are able to access the IT Data Analytics server.
  • Provides you the capability of controlling the level of access allowed to each user based on their roles.

You can also restrict access to the data collected by IT Data Analytics. This can be done by assigning user groups while creating data collectors.

User groups form the basis of enabling both role-based (or feature-level access) as well as data-level access. Therefore, to enable any kind of access to users, they must form a part of the correct user group.

You can either use IT Data Analytics or Atrium Single-Sign On to manage user authorization. For more information, see Authenticating users with Atrium Single Sign-On or IT Data Analytics.

To understand use cases for using Atrium Single-Sign On, see User authentication options.

To configure access control, you must complete the following steps:
