Hi,


does anybody know if it is possible on ciscoworks 2.6 to create multiple users that can access only their "own" equipments (meaning the equipments that they are responsible of) ?


Because we would like to have several teams use it, but we don't want one team to interact with another team's equipments.


thanks in advance,


Nicolas.

Hi Nicolas.


I think you're talking about LMS 2.6 overall (not just IPM), and yes, you can limit users to specific device groups but only if you are integrated with ACS.


Here's more information:


With CiscoWorks and CiscoSecure ACS integration, you can provide device level authorization. This device level authorization allows you to authorize only selected users to perform certain tasks, such as configuration updates and software image updates.


When the CiscoWorks server is in the ACS Login mode, a new device group, Secure Views is created. This allows you to perform a task on a device or restrict a set of device.


Secure Views enable filtering of group membership based on the user and the application task context in which a request is made.


Filtering is performed only when operating in ACS Login mode. While operating in non-ACS mode, no filtering is performed and evaluating a group results in all devices that group being returned.

Hope this helps.
