Looking at the Admin Guide in SD4.5 (currently running SP11), I reviewed the documentation on impelmenting foldering. How can I restrict certain roles/groups to specific CI Categories?
IE: I want to give Network personnel create, modify, view access to Network CIs but only view access to Server Hardware. Can I do this through foldering? If so, can you point me in the right direction.
Re: Setting up folders for Configuration Management
You can setup your folders, either based on the CI categories or customer names/IDs or your workgroups. It's just logical, you can conclude on any other approach as well. Write business rules, to update the folders as soon as the category is selected. By default, category attribute for a CI will be madatory. It will make sure that you select a category before saving a CI. And once category is selected, the rules will make sure that the folder is populated. If you want to restrict the CI masters from assigning CIs to wrong folders, make the folder attribute read-only.
Nevertheless, the access details depend on the roles.
