Managing Roles in Policy Manager

  • 1.  Managing Roles in Policy Manager

    Posted 03-11-2015 01:23 PM

    Hello,

     

    Is it possible to "edit" role definitions in policy manager?  I want to protect certain folders to allow developers to publish services and edit policies.  However, I want to create and segment folders by business area.  Setting up roles seemed like a good way to do this.  I see where you can create roles and filter by object type to scope things to a folder, but I can't see a way to edit the role once its created.

     

    Using Policy Manager 8.2

     

    Any help is appreciated.

     

    Thanks,

     

    Alejandro

    Hi Alejandro

     

    Yes, the RBAC of the policy manager allows you to do, just this.

     

    Each service/policy fragment/folder that gets created within the policy manager has a role that is assigned to it.  The manage roles under the Tasks / Manage Roles allows you to set users or groups from within the internal or IDP (LDAP, AD, etc.) to assign the roles.  We also have the ability to create a role for a specific reason.  Granting the CRUD capability to each new role.

     

     

    Thanks,
