The User Groups tab allows you to add, modify, and delete user groups that can access BMC TrueSight IT Data Analytics. You can create a group containing multiple users.

User groups are useful when you want to provide access to application data only to specific user roles or users with certain attributes. You can group users with similar attributes by adding them to a common user group, and then use that group for assigning access permissions to particular application data or data emerging from particular data sources.

Access control can be provided to event data at the time of creating data collectors, depending on:

  • Existing user role: These permissions determine tab-level access to the product. For more information, see User roles and permissions.
  • Events particular to certain application log files: These permissions determine content-level access to the product.
