Service Virtualization

  • 1.  Maintaining multiple registry or multiple VSE

    Posted 07-17-2016 06:12 PM


    Hi, In my project we have 2 assignments and due to nature of project, need to limit users from viewing or running any of the Virtual services hosted by other group in VSE. Now when deployed have option only to restrict users from VSE but not a specific service. In order to overcome, we came up with following option and looking for expertize to review and share your thoughts on this.

    Option 1: Create a new registry which in turn will be provided access to 2nd set of associates who can host the services and access them in VSE. This will restrict one set of users to both registry and hosted services.

    Question: Will creating a new registry restrict and differentiate users from VSE/services hosted due to the nature of permissions lended to each registry.

    Option 2: Creating dedicated VSE for each project and provide access on specific set of resources.

    Question: Will this require any additional license to setup 2 VSE within the existing license.

     

    Please share your thoughts and let me know any additional information is needed.

    DevTestUser@ I tried but it does have option only to restrict the complete VSE and not to any specific services within the VSE.

    No need to setup a separate registry. I'd recommend option #2 with separate VSEs and here's how to do it -  use the concept of Resource Groups in the ACL administration. Doing that you can have one resource group for VSE1 and another for VSE2. Then assign separate users to those Resource Groups thereby creating a segregation between the users and it allowing them to access each other's VSE assets.

    I would suggest to go with Option-2 with separate VSE's for each projects and maintain access levels through resource groups in Administration section. Related to licensing, please check with your accounting team about it.

    KOUSTUBH WARTY & Srikanth Gajawada@ Thanks for your comments. Considered the 2nd option of creating new VSE but due to limitation in license, utilized one of existing VSE and restricted general users. For general users routed them to a different registry to get the restriction implemented. Both of your comments were appropriate, thanks again for your response.
