Memberships are managed by a GroundWork Administrator (e.g., admin/admin) and accessed from the toolbar option Group > Organization. The Portal Administrator (e.g., root/root) can also manage memberships. System default memberships should not be removed. Memberships provide access permissions for dashboard to status links, access to all or specific host and service groups, and application level permissions. For additional information see About System Administration.
As an example in the steps below, we create a new membership that allows access to only one host group versus all host groups and service groups (default). Unchecking the option Allow access to all Host Groups and Services Groups enables an administrator to select specific host and service groups for visibility within the various applications that display these elements.
- Log in to GroundWork Monitor as an Administrator (e.g., admin/admin).
- Hover over Group > Organization, and select Users and groups management.
- Select the Membership Management tab.
- In the Add/Edit Membership form, enter the values:
- Membership name (required) - Only letters, digits, dots, dashes and underscores are allowed, (e.g., SFMembership).
- Description - Membership description, (e.g., SF members)
- Add/Edit Membership - Notice the option Allow access to all Host Groups and Services Groups is checked (by default) which allows users assigned this membership to view all host groups and service groups. When unchecked, an administrator can select specific groups (e.g., SFServers) for visibility within the various applications that display these elements, providing the portal page is accessible to the user.
- Select Save. Now if you assign this membership to a user (Group Management) that user will be restricted to view only the specified host and service groups (e.g., SFServers) in Status, Event Console and other various areas host and service groups are displayed.
