Control-M/EM GUI Authorizations

To perform any action in Control-M we need Authorization/Permission. This will be setup using Authorizations window in Control-M/EM GUI. Using this we can create, modify or Delete user-id's and their privileges. This is the window Schedulers or Admin will use to create a User-Id or Reset Password or modifying privileges.. etc.

To access the Authorizations window Follow the below steps:
  1. Log on to CONTROL-M/EM GUI or CONTROL-M/Desktop.
  2.  Choose Tools => Authorizations. The Users tab is displayed.
The Authorization window has separate panels for users and groups. The Users panel enables you to add, modify, copy, or delete a user whose authorizations can be configured. The Groups panel enables you to add, modify, copy, or delete a group whose authorizations apply to members of the group.

Actions that are permitted or denied for each access level are described below. 
  1. None - Denies access to the component.  
  2. Browse - Can view and refresh the component.  
  3. Update - Permits adding and modifying CONTROL-M information.  
  4. Full - Permits adding, modifying, and deleting CONTROL-M information.  
  5. Default - [Valid for user authorizations. Not valid for group authorizations.] Inherits the permissions from the group to which the user belongs. Use of this is, We can create a Group with list of Privileges
The panel will look like below.
