IBM Tivoli Monitoring / Plan item 24724

Created on:   30 May 2012

Last update:   13 Jul 2012

Tabs showing plan item details and comments

Granular authorization

Status: Implementing

Priority: High



Tivoli administrators have a need to grant permissions, to application SMEs and operators, for the ability to view managed system data and execute TakeActions. In the current infrastructure, we cannot assign permissions based on Managed System List (MSL) and so cannot really support the principle of "Least Privilege".

This EPIC will provide Tivoli administrators with an interface for creating authorization policies to control managed system list (MSL) and Take Action access so that they can create TIP dashboards, whose contents are restricted by MSL, for their SMEs and Operators. We will be using roles, as opposed to just user groups, because roles have standardized semantics and are easier to administer.
