CiscoWorks - Need to restrict users to access certain device groups

Hey all,

I am using CiscoWorks LMS and RWAN 5th edition with RADIUS authentication. We provide consulting for another network infrastructure aside from ours, and I would like to also begin monitoring and managing this other company's network with our same Ciscoworks box - instead of implementing an additional system. I would also like to give the techs from this company access to just their devices within Ciscoworks.

I have setup dynamic display groups in RME to group their equipment separate from ours by populating the company name in the user field. However, I cannot find any documented way to restrict a certain user's access to only one display group, or any group of devices. Has anyone ever come up with a way to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Closest could that within RME Device Views, Private Views can be created. You can set up private views for yourself from the views you are allowed to access. Only you can see your private views. Only privileged users with specific roles can create private views. But note that the user roles are fixed in RME as seen by the Permissions Report.
