For customers who are upgrading to TrueSight Presentation Server, this getting started topic describes how solution administration differs from TrueSight Infrastructure Management and TrueSight App Visibility Manager. Solution Administrators should read this topic to understand how they can perform tasks differently in the TrueSight console.
Administrative consoles before and after upgrade
Before BMC TrueSight Presentation Server 10.0, administration of the monitoring systems was performed in the individual product consoles, as follows:
TrueSight Infrastructure Management - Administrators used the Central Monitoring Administration, hosted on an Infrastructure Management Server, to download BMC PATROL Agents and Knowledge Modules, download Integration Service hosts, create installation packages, and set up monitoring policies to collect events and performance data from monitored systems.
- BMC Application Diagnostics - Administrators used the BMC Application Performance Management Console to configure the portal, collectors, and agents, and to set up data collection and SLA rules.
- BMC Synthetic Monitoring - Administrators used the BMC Application Performance Management Console to configure the BMC Synthetic TEA Agent and set up execution plans and scripts to generate synthetic transactions.
- Authentication and access control were handled through mechanisms specific to the monitoring systems' architecture and consoles.
After upgrading to TrueSight Operations Management, Solution Administrators will use the TrueSight console for system configuration, data provider configuration, and role-based access control. Security administrators or Solution Administrators will use the Atrium SSO Admin Console to define users and tenants.
You still need the to configure events and adapters. For further information, see .
Administrative consoles after upgrade
Migration of system configuration to Presentation Server
System configuration will be migrated to the TrueSight console as indicated in the following topics:
|Migrating component and information||Reference|
|BMC App Visibility Manager (formerly BMC Application Diagnostics) policy and configuration files|
BMC Transaction Management Application Response Time scripts and configurations
Note: Migration from BMC Synthetic Transaction Monitoring 2.6.00 (Borland Silk Performer Synthetic Transaction Monitoring for BMC Software ) is not currently supported.
|BMC Infrastructure Management – PATROL Repository|
Solution administration functions
The following figure illustrates the major functions of solution administration in the TrueSight console. For information about all configuration tasks, including those not performed in the console, see Administering and .
Each quick tour provide a visual overview of these functions and links to how-to information.
Quick tour of security administration functions
Atrium Single Sign-On provides the user account and tenant management capabilities to BMC TrueSight Presentation Server. Solution Administrators create users, user groups, and tenants as realms in the BMC Atrium SSO Admin Console. User Groups are then assigned to Authorization Profiles in the TrueSight console. For more information, see in the Atrium Single Sign-On documentation.
The TrueSight console provides role-based access control to data, system features, and features enabled by the data providers. Solution Administrators define roles and authorization profiles that control data access and the users' ability to perform functions. For more information, see Managing users and access control.
Quick tour of system configuration and integration configuration
The initial configuration of the Presentation Server occurs during installation. After installation, the Solution Administrator connects the data providers to the Presentation Server and integrates other components that extend the functionality of the system. For more information, see and
Quick tour of administration for common monitoring functions
The TrueSight console provides Dashboards as the common features for enabling IT Operations to monitor your IT infrastructure and critical applications. All users can configure dashboards; however, Solution Administrators or specialists need first to configure the data providers and set up data collection.
