Summary

By default the Opalis Integration Server system is configured to allow only members of the local Administrators group on the Management Server computer to view, modify and manage Folders, Policies, Computer Groups, Variables, Counters and Schedules however these permissions can be changed on a per object basis or inherited from a parent object using Access Control Lists (ACL) much like Windows NTFS permissions.

More Information

Permissions can be directly set to any Folder, Policy, Computer Group, Variable, Counter or Schedule.  When working with Folders, permissions can be set directly to the Folder as well allowing any child objects to inherit the permissions.

Setting Object Permissions

To set permissions perform the following steps:

  1. Right-click on the Folder, Policy, Computer Group, Variable, Counter or Schedule to be modified and click on the Permissions... button.
  2. Add or remove users or groups as desired and grant the desired permissions to each user/group.
  3. Click on the Apply button for the changes to take effect.
  4. Click on the OK button to close the Permissions for... dialog.

Any new explicit permission entries that are added are applied only to the specific object.  To allow new permission entries to be applied to child objects, inheritance must be configured as outlined below.

Setting Permission Inheritance

Permission inheritance works in two parts:  First the child object must be configured to allow permissions to be inherited from the parent (this is the default) and secondly the parent object must be configured to allow permissions to be inherited by child objects.

To configure the child object to allow inherited permissions from the parent object, perform the following steps:

  1. Right-click on the Folder to be modified and click on the Permissions... button.
  2. Click on the Advanced button.
  3. Select the checkbox Allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects.  Include these with entries explicitly defined here.
  4. Click on the Apply button for the changes to take effect.
  5. Click on the OK button to close the Advanced Security Settings for... dialog.
  6. Click on the OK button to close the Permissions for... dialog.

To configure the parent object to allow permissions to be inherited by child items, perform the following steps:

  1. Right-click on the Folder to be modified and click on the Permissions... button.
  2. Click on the Advanced button.
  3. If it is desired to allow permissions that this object inherited to be applied to child objects, select the checkbox Allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects.  Include these with entries explicitly defined here.
  4. Select one of your explicit entries from the Permission entries window and click on the Edit... button.
  5. From the Apply onto drop-down list, select This object and all child objects.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for any additional explicit permission entries.
  7. Click on the Apply button for the changes to take effect.
  8. Click on the OK button to close the Advanced Security Settings for... dialog.
  9. Click on the OK button to close the Permissions for... dialog.
