Roles comprise sets of permissions that provide role-based access to the Operations Management features, and are a required component of authorization profiles. Modifying the default roles to accommodate the requirements of your environment is an easy way to customize the default authorization profiles . Users with the Super Admin role can edit and delete all roles, including the default roles. 

You modify a role by adding and deleting permissions. You can also grant roles access to all or specific UI elements. 

When editing a role, the Roles Details page shows the selected permissions and their corresponding categories in the TrueSight Infrastructure and TrueSight Presentation tables. Each table provides an action menu that you can use to change permissions for the category.

To edit a role

  1. In the navigation pane, select Administration > Roles.
  2. In the Roles Management window, select the role's action menu , and select Edit to open the Role Details page.

    To quickly find a role, type a character string in the text box. 
  3. To grant all permissions to the role, select Allow all permissions, and skip to step 5. Otherwise, proceed to the next step.

  4. In the Application, Infrastructure, and TrueSight tables, modify the permissions as necessary:

    1. Select the table action menu.
    2. Add or remove permissions by selecting or clearing check boxes.
    3. Click OK
  5. Click Save.
