Applications Manager permits three types of user access to work with the product. The different roles are
The system users have read only access to all components of the product. They will not have the privilege to access, configure or edit the different components of the product.
The system operators have read only access to those components of the product that the administrator assigns to the operator. They will not have the privilege to access, configure or edit the different components of the product.
The system administrators are allowed to perform all admin activities like creating new monitor groups and new monitors, configuring alarms and thresholds and creating new actions. The Administrator can provide mail server and proxy configurations.
Further, the administrator can configure SNMP Trap Listeners to receive traps and also schedule the timeperiod for which monitoring is not needed through Maintenance window.
Using LDAP/AD for User Authentication
Active Directory Authentication Module is also implemented in Applications Manager in order to ease the user administration . Using Active Directory(AD) authentication module one can import users from Active Directory, which enables users to log in to Applications Manager if they have an account in an Active Directory domain.
