    Hello Francisco,

    You can use the CA SRM User Manager utility to define one or more users, each with a different login and password. CA SRM includes a built-in user ADMIN with a blank password. If you define additional users, each can create and save a custom CA SRM desktop, with personalized user views, solutions, and other user-definable features. Each time CA SRM starts, it prompts for the user login and password, then loads the appropriate set of definitions.

    The CA SRM Windows Client supports two levels of users:

    • Administrator -- Creates and deletes users, changes user names, modifies the property definitions for users, creates services, configures views, and registers objects.
    • Client -- Runs existing services, configures views, and can change client passwords.

    CA SRM stores all user definitions (user views, passwords, and so on) in a central database. If the central database is stored on a network drive, you can start CA SRM from any machine and have your settings loaded after you log in. Certain rules apply uniquely for the Open Systems option database and the z/OS Option database.

    When you install the Windows Client, you are asked where the Central directory should be located. If you want a single Central directory for all Windows Client users, you need to make sure that the directory is shared and accessible to all users. Each time you install another Windows Client, point to the same Central directory when asked for the location of the Central database.

    From the User Manager, you can add a user, delete a user, change a user name, and modify the property definitions for a user. For more information, see Working with the User Manager.

    If you ask this for a Web Client, the answer is not for now.
    Regards,
    Pierre

    Hello Francisco,

    Let us know if answer provided by my colleague Pierre answer your question.
    I want to confirm you are interested about administrative groups in the UI or maybe it is in the host?

    Best regards,
    Mihai

    I want to control access to the tool, such as: Users who can create scripts / scripting changes, who can access the tool, admin users, ordinary users. Finally, a safety check on the tool.

    Today, as implemented here, all users who have access to the tool (who have registered with RACF) make changes to the tool. In addition to this RACF access, I wanted to restrict some operations within the VANTAGE tool.
