1 User Permissions

There are several permission systems that restrict what an user could see or administrate.

1.1 ACLs

The ACLs system controls which elements an user could see or administrate depending on the group they belong to.

For example:

  • An user could have reading permissions on the alert templates of the Applications group and those of Administration on the Server group.
  • You will be able to see and assign templates to both groups, but you only have the option to edit or delete the ones of the Server group.

1.2 Tags

One tag is a label that you can assign to a module.

An user could have the ACLs in some specific group restricted by Tags. If so, only these ACLs will be applied to the modules that contains those Tags.

For example:

  • An user could have reading or administration permission in the Server group restricted to the Systems Tag.
  • It will only have these permissions on the modules, that even belonging to an agent of the Server groups, will have assigned the System Tag.
