    Is it possible to link Active Directory groups with Autosys access profiles @CA EEM?

    For example

    AD group "AD ADMIN - SCHEDULER" -> Autosys CA EEM "ConsoleOperator"

    If so, could you please explain me how to do it? - I couldn't find any info in the manuals.

     

    Thank you.

    Hi,

     

    Yes you can tie an LDAP group to an internal EEM group.  In your example you mention the ConsoleOperators group which is a Dynamic User Group.  In the EEM interface you can go to Manage Access Policies and click on Dynamic User Group Policies on the left hand side to get a listing of Dynamic User Groups.  Click on the ConsoleOperators one on the right hand side and it will open up for editing.  Under "Identities" change the type to Global Group and click the search identities link.  Put the LDAP group name in the Value box and click search and it should query LDAP and find the group.  Once a result is returned simply highlight it and click the arrow pointing to the right to add it to the selected identities box.  Then save your policy.  This assumes that you have already mapped your EEM user store to an LDAP.


    Documentation on tying to an LDAP can be found here: https://docops.ca.com/ca-wla-ae-wcc/11-4-2/en/securing/security-policy-customization/active-directory-authentication 

    Documentation on policy customization can be found here: https://docops.ca.com/ca-wla-ae-wcc/11-4-2/en/securing/security-policy-customization/customize-security-policy-and-setti… 

     

    Hope that helps.

    Setting up AD and eEM is absolutely documented and how to apply to policies etc.

    Perhaps have your workload AE engineer set it up for you .. and assist.,

     

    Good luck .

    there's also the string subtraction one can do on the AD group to do a one and done approach to your policies.
