You can restrict a user from accessing certain data in the WebNMS Client and also confine him to viewing and working only on selected network events and alarms. This is achieved using the Custom View Scope mechanism of the Security Management. For more information, refer to Managing Custom View Scopes.
This topic provides an example based on which you can create your own Custom View Scopes.
This example aims at
Creating a user named test.
Associating this user with a new group named faultgroup.
Providing faultgroup, the permission to view and perform operations on alarms from a specific network element named router1 and with an alarm severity of Major.
In WebNMS Client, from Tools menu, choose Security Administration. The Security Administration tool is displayed.
Add a new user named test.
Add a new group named faultgroup.
Assign required permissions to the faultgroup.
Assign the new user test to the faultgroup.
Set the Scope Criteria.
Select the faultgroup on the Security tree.
Click Custom View Scope for Group tab on the right-side frame.
From Custom View Scope for Group drop-down box, choose Alerts.
Click Add AuthorizedScope. The Scope Settings dialog box is displayed. Enter the Name as Router1_Major. From Name drop-down box, choose the property as severity and enter the Value as 2. For information on each of the properties listed in the Name drop-down box, refer to Appendix in User Guide.
Again, from Name drop-down box, choose the property as source and enter the Value as router1.
Click Permitted Operations for Group tab.
A screen shot depicting the procedure is given below.
When you log in with user name test, you will be able to view only the alarms of the network element router1 with Major severity.
