Managing administrators

This topic describes how to manage Product Administrators and MQSC Console Administrators.

Managing Product Administrators

The following procedure assumes that you have navigated to the Admin Console as a Product Administrator user.

Note

When running MainView Middleware Administrator (MVMA) with the LDAP_LDAP security model, you need to click the Request button to populate the users or groups in the selection list (see the following procedures) from the attached security repository. It is also recommended to enter a filter expression to limit the search and its impact as much as possible.

Users and groups are only populated automatically for the ADMIN security model.

To define a user as a Product Administrator

  1. Select Product Administrators from the Navigation Panel.
  2. The Product Administrators view fills the workspace; select the Add Item icon "+" from the options above the Users list.
  3. In the displayed dialog, select from the list of available users. Note that you can filter the list of users by entering the relevant filter terms and clicking Request.
  4. Click OK. The selected user is added to the list of existing Product Administrators. 
  5. Click the Save icon to save your changes.
