Problem
How can I change the permissions to a report or collection for an Altiris Role?

Example: I want to grant clone permissions to the Altiris Worker for reports to the Altiris Worker.

Environment
Notification Server 6.0

Cause
The permissions to reports for an Altiris Role need to be modified.

Resolution
The following example shows how to grant "clone" permissions for reports in a specific folder to a specific Altiris Role. Other permissions for reports and collections for other Altiris Roles can be modified in a similar manner.

  1. On the Reports tab (for reports) or Resources tab (for collections), right-click on the folder that contains the reports or collections you want be able to clone and choose Properties.
  2. In the Properties window, click the Security tab.
  3. In the Permissions window, click the Add button.
  4. In the Role Selection window, select the role (in this case, Altiris Level 1 Workers was selected).
  5. In the Permission Selection window, Altiris System Permissions section, mark clone and click the Select button.
  6. Click the Apply button.

The "clone" permission will be available for all reports or collections in the folder and its subfolders for the specified role.
