How do I setup permissions for a role within SCM to grant users in the dashboard access to view data in their published tabs?
When I select a published tab in the Dashboard I recieve charts with no data and an Error: Could not find group with access allowed message.


To setup permissions inside of SCM to allow all users who are part of the role granted access to a tab follow the directions below.

SCM Instructions:

  1. Login to SCM with an account with administrative rights and then select the Console Permissions Node.
  2. Select the Role that you wish to grant permissions to within the Dashboard and select the permissions button on the bottom left of the screen.
  3. Select the Console tab
  4. Select "Access IT Assets" under the Console Actions section.



Permissions to view data inside of the Dashboard are determined by permissions granted to access groups in IT Assets and the role(s) assigned to the tab.  Users can be granted access to view reports within SCM and at the same time not have access to view data within a tab in the Dashboard.  Also a user may be part of a role that is granted access to view certain groups of servers and another role that has no access and only part of the data could be displayed compared to users who have access to the entire group selection for the dashboard tab.
