You can prevent a user from accessing certain data in the WebNMS Client and also confine him to viewing and working on only selected performance information. This can be 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 for Performance views.
Assume that there are two users with the following privileges. These users can view only the performance details of hosts that start with 's'.
User1: View Thresholds list and View Polling objects
User2: View Thresholds list, View Polling objects, and Add Statistics
In WebNMS Client, from the Tools menu, choose Security Administration. The Security Administration tool is displayed.
Add new user User1 and User2.
Add new group Group A.
Assign required permissions for the Group.
Assign the two new users User1 and User2 to Group A.
Set the Scope Criteria.
Select the Group A on the Security tree.
Click the Custom View Scope for Group tab on the right-side frame.
From the Custom View Scope for Group drop-down box, choose Stats Admin.
Click Add AuthorizedScope. The Scope Settings dialog box is displayed. Enter the Name as Scope A. From the Name drop-down box, select the property as agent and enter the Value as s*.
After executing this example, log in to the WebNMS Client using the newly added user names. Your Client displays only performance details of devices whose host name starts with S.
