Authorization

In the Solution Manager installation, an administrator can control what privileges a role has over a specific environment. Grant to a role the MONITOR privilege over an environment, and all the users with that role will be allowed to:

  • See the environment, its clusters and its servers in the catalog of the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool.

  • Monitor the environment, its clusters and its server.

  • Create diagnostics under any server.

  • Launch the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool from My Applications, when the user selects the environment.

In the Denodo Platform installation, there are different requirements:

  • The catalog is private to the user. Once you logged in, you are allowed to create environments and servers, but they will not be shared with anyone else.

  • To monitor environments or servers you need to configure the servers with the credentials of:

    • an administrator, or

    • a user with the monitor_admin role.

  • The first diagnostic initializes the diagnostics metadata in Virtual DataPort. It has to be created with:

    • an administrator, or

    • a user with the serveradmin role.

  • Once Virtual DataPort is initialized with the diagnostics metadata, you only need the diagnostic_monitoring_tool_create_diagnostic role to create a new diagnostic.

In addition, for both installations, you need to have the diagnostic_monitoring_tool_admin role to be able to change the server configuration of the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool.
