Getting Started Wizard Permissions

SOLVED

Getting Started Wizard Permissions

In our 4.3 environment we're unable to give specific users permissions to run the getting started wizard. We want to be able to give this permission to a specific user but prevent them from seeing all of the applications in the controller. They should only see the application that they normally see in the apps list. It looks like this permission is built into the account owner role but isnt able to be split up. In our 4.2 environment we have no problems giving specific users access to the getting started wizard but no access to non authorized apps.

Is this possible to do in 4.3? 

When we create a role we will give them all edit permissions to a specific app but giving solely this does not enable them to deploy their own java agents. This setup currently works in our 4.2 environment.

Re: Getting Started Wizard Permissions

You can do so by providing the below two permissons to the newly created role.

- Administer user, group, roles, authentication, etc. View Appdynamics Agent. Use Getting Started Wizard.

- View and configure licenses.

 

To manage Application for that role you may configure Applications options. Do refer attached screens.Screen Shot 2017-07-07 at 10.08.28 AM.pngScreen Shot 2017-07-07 at 10.12.59 AM.png

Re: Getting Started Wizard Permissions

Thanks for your response. I wish it was as easy at that but the users should never be able to see the other applications or the admin console, as they can easily change roles and user permissons without approval. Your solution meets the requirements of just access to their application but with that setup the users could just go in and make all the local accounts they want and whatever roles they want.

Re: Getting Started Wizard Permissions

We understand that these should be decoupled, have an ongoing enhancement request to have seperate permissions for "Administer user" and "Use Getting Started Wizard". 

Here is the enhancement request id UIPLAT-99. This feture will be avaliable in future versions.

Pratik

Re: Getting Started Wizard Permissions

Thanks for the update! Just find it weird it works perfectly in my 4.2 environment that way. Even though apparently the getting started wizard was associated with the same items but maybe it just wasnt implemented properly on our setup.

Re: Getting Started Wizard Permissions

Is this enchantment request across the board, or per site? We really don't feel comfortable having to give users access to overide their account permissions or even worse the ability to change our admins passwords and permissions.

Hi Pratik, 

 


When can we expect UIPLAT-99 to be in production?   Is there a release date or a release version for this to be implemented? 

 

Thanks,
