How can I create a Security Role in Notification Server 7 for users that need to run just reports?
Note: Since this Security Role will only be used to run reports, and most reports will run without any security privileges, then we won't any privileges now. There may be some reports fail if some privileges are not assigned.
Note: If no console items are selected, the user will see an "Access Denied" message after entering their credentials. For additional possible log-on issues see: User Fails to log on to the Symantec Management Console (SMC) 7
Note: If no reports are selected, then the restricted user will see in the left-hand pane an "Access Denied" message, and they will not be able to select any reports.
Note: if no resources are selected, then the user will be able to run reports but no information will be displayed in the report.
Note: some reports might not run, or run correctly if the user lacks some additional permissions or privileges
If the user is able to run a report, but no results are returned, then you might modify the limited Security Role to also view individual Resources, along with Organizational Views and Groups.
From the Console toolbar:
- you can see Organizational Views and Organizational Groups which the limited Security Role can access
- the resources, which the limited Security Role can access, are in the correct Organizational Groups
If you are seeing permission errors in the Altiris logs, see:
