Monitors and Metrics

Hi All

I need to give access to users to Monitors and Metrics screens Only in order to allow them to create their own Metrics and monitors and providing themselves with alerting services.Also can we restrict them to choose query template from specific directory Only ,not to access other query templates.

Please let me know ASAP.

Ideas would be appriciated

    No, not that I know of...not without restricting access to everyone that is.

    The only other option is to custom build your own page that does a browse of the templates you want and still performs the operations of the Monitors and Metrics pages. I recommend against this approach because it is prone to bugs but "you have to do what you have to do".

    Hi Veeresh,

    I assume you are on 11.5.

    This is how you can do it in my opinion.

    1. Create a Role e.g.: AlertUsers

    2. Assign AlertUsers-Role and Everyone-Role to your user then.

    3. To get the Metrics Screen

    a) Open Link in New Window -> Properties


    b) Assign this Page in the Navigation Editor to your Role AlertUsers

    4. To get the Page running

    a) Security Services -> System Security

    b) Assign the Service: MetricAlertServices to your Role AlertUsers

    c) Assign the Service: Admin to your Role AlertUsers

    Unfortunately the Admin-Service has to be assigned,

    otherwise you are not able to get the Roles for the Metrics.

    5. restrict them to choose query template

    a) Remove the Everyone-Role from the affected queries.

    So all your queries will be "protected" but you have to maintain your security settings.

    b) Assign the AlertUsers-Role instead to the affected queries.

    Hope this helps.

    Comments on the Admin-Service are welcome.

      Hi Veeresh,

      Why you can't remove the role Everyone from reader roles on the security tab of a QT?

      Which Version are you running?

      You can't assign particular person to a QT folder I never talked about this. And I don't would to put too much work on it get it solved by ISS and Windows Securitiy on 11.5 because 12.0 is as you know on a different plattform.
