About Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)
When Squared Up connects to SCOM, it does so using the end user’s credentials. This means that all SCOM data in Squared Up is subject to SCOM’s role-based access control (RBAC). For example, if a user views a dashboard of “All Windows Computers”, the actual computers shown on the dashboard will be limited to those that the user has permissions to view.
Actions in Squared Up are also subject to SCOM RBAC. The different SCOM roles have permissions as follows:
- Administrators can edit, create and delete dashboards in Squared Up, manage alerts, manage maintenance mode and run tasks.
- Authors can edit Company Knowledge.
- Advanced Operators have the same permissions as Operators.
- Operators can manage alerts, manage maintenance mode and run tasks.
- Read Only Operators can view data, but cannot manage alerts, maintenance mode or run tasks.
For more information see How do SCOM roles and permissions affect what they can do in Squared Up?
Note that, when users access an Open Access dashboard Squared Up uses the application pool identity to access SCOM, and the permissions of that identity apply.
