The Roles Manager portlet allows the Teradata Viewpoint Administrator to assign permissions efficiently by creating classes of users called roles.

The Teradata Viewpoint Administrator can perform the following tasks:
  • Add and configure new roles
  • Edit the configuration and settings of existing and default roles
  • Copy roles, saving time in creating new roles
  • Enable or disable portlets for a role
  • Delete roles that are no longer needed
  • Configure Secure Zones for a database system
  • Grant metric and portlet permissions for a role
  • Configure default portlet settings
  • Grant a role access to portlets, Viewpoint Dashboard, and Viewpoint Mobile
  • Grant web services access
    • If a user with role VP_User_Manager accesses the Roles Manager portlet, the user can only view or modify their role and roles created by them.
    • If JWT integration with Vantage is enabled (versions and later), the User Management web service is not listed.
