To define roles and permissions

  1. In the BMC ProactiveNet Administration Console, select the Administration > General Administration tab.
  2. Expand the Advanced Options folder.
  3. Select and right-click the Role folder and select Add Role.
  4. In the Add Roles and Permissions dialog box, enter the Name of the new role.
  5. Select from the Permissions options.
  6. Select the Super Admin option to assign all permissions in the Permissions List to the role. 

    The Permissions List is dimmed and unavailable.


    When a user group is assigned a role that has Super Admin selected, all users associated to that user group become a Super Administrator of the system with access to all entities in the system and full permissions.

  7. Select Limited Access option to select from the permissions in the Permissions List.
  8. Select the permissions to assign to the role.

    • When creating a new role, you must select Allow Operations Console or Allow SLO management console to enable the user to access at least one of the consoles.
    • The Permissions List master check box might not display the correct status. However, you can still select all or no permissions when you select or clear the master check box.
  9. Click Finish
  10. Add the new user group to the following .mrl files in the Knowledge Base of the cell.
    • ibrsd_collectors.mrl 
    • pom_activeevents_collectors.mrl
    • pom_byuser_collectors.mrl
    • pom_intelligentevents_collectors.mrl

      For more details about .mrl files, see Event rules.
  11. After you add the custom user group to the .mrl files, compile and reload the cell by opening a command prompt and entering the following commands:

    • mccomp -n cellName
    • mcontrol -n cellName reload kb
  12. Log on to the BMC ProactiveNet Operations Console using a user account from the group to which you added the custom role.


    You can also define roles and permissions by clicking New from the user group screen.
