I am trying to create a view only application user for CUP. - customer wants view access to admin page on cup. I created a new group and assigned a role of 'ccmadmin view' . I assigned the group to a new application user - I try and login but it does not present me with the admin pages - it just takes me back to the web login page. If i login with the wrong password it states wrong username or password but as i said if i login correctly then it just presents me back to the admin page with the blank username and login page.
Ah - I see what you mean. I just labbed this. Looks like someone at Cisco has done a wonderful job of testing this.
If you've ever done this in CCM, you'll know you normally add the custom user group to the 'Standard CCM Admin Users' role that grants access to ccmadmin, and then give read/update privileges by creating another role.
Unfortunately with CUPS, you don't see that role in order to be able to add it.
Go into User Groups, click on Standard CUP Super Users.
Click 'Copy', and call the new copy Standard CUP Read Only Users or whatever you like
Select 'Assign roles to user group' from the drop down
Remove 'Standard CCMAdmin Administration' but LEAVE 'Standard CCM Admin Users' there.
Add the 'ReadOnly' role you created or the 'Standard CCMAdmin Read Only' role listed as for 'Presence Administration' to the group
Assign your app user to the group.
That must be worth more than three stars? :-)
