Page permissions are not properly working for a user that belongs for more than one group:

When a user is mapped to more than 1 group, the page permissions takes permissions from lower permitted group.


In our company all users are member of IT Department group which is the root group of LDAP. This group has limited permissions.

We are also member of special sub Monitoring- department which has admin permissions.



  • USER01
  • USER02                                         - NORMAL USER ROLE
  • USER03



  • APM USER01
  • APM USER02                             ADM USER ROLE
  • APM USER03



That is why we are in 2 groups with different permissions.

Monitoring Department has full permission, other IT Department members has permission to see MyBSM page only.


Current result:

We can see MyBSM page only, not the rest.



How the permission concept from vendor works?

Is there an existing one?


Design details:

The user should take permissions from higher permitted group (Monitoring Department).

This has been a requested enhancement for a few years!  I haven't fooled with this in OMi too much, but I know that it can be a pain in the bunns. We have many folks that have varying levels of support and access to see screens.  Our Server platform teams need to see all of the servers, and most of the apps the servers are running.  But the app support teams don't need to see all of the servers.  If we add a server person to an app team role so that they can see the app team's dashboards, they lose the ability to see all of the servers...    Would really like to see the Security Permissions be an AND operation, not a Lowest Level operation.

We do not plan to offer this functionality for the current APM.

In future we are working on a tighter integration into the ITOM platform and the Operations Bridge. With this move we plan to improve  user management and consider this use case as well.
