Access rights

By default all users can carry out all possible actions on every computer that is registered to their tenant. This ability depends on the functionality that the computer can support. All users can see the monthly usage data for their tenant. You can control the available actions at three levels: globally, per tenant, or per user.

Control of these access rights is available through Admin > Settings > Integration Settings in the NetBackup Adapter Access Rights section. The access rights are Allow Backup Now, Allow Protect Machine, Allow Restore File, Allow Restore Vm, Allow Unprotect Machine, Allow Register for File Restore, Allow Restore SQL, Allow Restore Oracle, and Allow Usage Report.

To globally enable or disable an action for all users

  1. Click the required access right in the NetBackup Adapter Access Rights section.
  2. Choose Enabled or Disabled in the Value field.

    Ensure Allow Tenant Override is not checked.

    Ensure Allow User Override is (None).

  3. To allow different tenants to have different actions available to them.
    • Click the required access right in the NetBackup Adapter Access Rights section

    • Choose Enabled or Disabled in the Value field. This setting is the default for any existing tenants or any new tenants

    • Check Allow Tenant Override

      Ensure Allow User Override is set to None.

Only a non-tenant associated administrator who has access to all of the Tenants can change the value.

To configure the value of the access rights for each tenant

  1. Select the Integration tab in the Tenant Admin screen.
  2. Admin > Organization > Tenant > Integration.
  3. Click the required access right in the NetBackup Adapter Access Rights section.
  4. Choose Enabled or Disabled in the Value field.

To allow different users to have different actions available to them

  1. Click the required access right in the NetBackup Adapter Access Rights section.
  2. Choose Enabled or Disabled in the Value field. This setting is the default for any existing or any new users.
  3. Ensure Allow Tenant Override is not checked.
  4. Set Allow User Override to For User.

When For User overriding is chosen the value can be changed in any of the following places:

  • By an administrator user in the Integration tab of User Administration (Admin > Organization > User > Integration)

  • By an administrator user in the Integration tab of Tenant User Administration (Admin > Organization > Tenant > Users > Select User > Integration)

  • By a tenant administrator in the Integration tab of their tenant's User Maintenance screen (Admin > User Management > Select User > Integration).

    • Click the required access right in the NetBackup Adapter Access Rights section

    • Choose Enabled or Disabled in the Value field

Do not select the By User override option.
