This topic describes roles and permissions of Infrastructure Management users.

The availability of various Infrastructure Management features for a user depends on the roles and permissions assigned to the user group to which the user is assigned.

Users are assigned to at least one user group. User groups can have multiple roles. One role can be assigned to multiple user groups, giving identical permissions to different user groups.

The roles attached to the user group give the permission to access objects in the user group.

You can define and edit the permissions that are assigned to each role in the Roles and Permissions dialog box in the User Group screen. The permissions are categorized based on usability such as Events, Product Administration, SLOs, Reports, and Graphs.

Predefined roles are displayed in the available list box of the roles and permission tab in the user group screen.

Default access

The Default access table shows display name, category, type of action (view or edit), a description of the Infrastructure Management permissions, and whether the action is allowed by default to the roles and user groups. Click the table title to expand.
