    Hi,

     

    We have EEM configured with APM 9.7 :

     

    Looking into setting up users and groups giving access on a per domain basis - ie:

     

    User A has access/visibility to domain A (and hide all other domains)

    User B has access/visibility to domain B, C, D (and hide the rest)


    Likewise user group A has access to domain A etc etc ...


    Having read all the APM documentation its still not clear to me that this is possible ? or a limitation ?


    If it is possible could you advise on how this is achieved ? assuming this is possible it will be using the safex cmd and create some xml actions ?


    Thanks

    Hi Andy,

    I have not tested this myself but I would have thought your scenario should be possible by creating explicit grant & deny policies in EEM for the various domains and assigning to the relevant users.

    Hi Andy,

    Managed to test this out and it seems to work as I expected - see attached steps for EEM global users I created but same should apply if you are using LDAP at the backend.

    There is possibly a more efficient way in EEM to achieve the final required access limitations, but I have not gone into that.

    Hope this helps

     

    Regards,

    This is the perfect setup details for configuring users for a domain. This example should be included in the documentation for EEM.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I also have KB for this (http://www.ca.com/us/support/ca-support-online/product-content/knowledgebase-articles/tec1465734.aspx ), but I will request if the example can be included in the APM Security section for EEM.

    Regards,

    Lynn
