The following examples show how roles can be defined to manage portlet usage and control permissions within Teradata Viewpoint.
The AppDBA role is defined for users that are application DBAs. The rewind feature and some portlets are enabled for this role so users can review graphs in the Productivity portlet.
The AcctDept role is defined for all users in the Accounting Department. Some portlets are enabled for this role. These users are granted permissions so they can edit all calendar events in the Viewpoint Calendar portlet and access the My Queries portlet to monitor their queries.
The OpDBA role is defined for users that are operations DBAs. The rewind feature and all portlets are enabled for this role so users can monitor performance trends. Users in the OpDBA role access the Workload Monitor portlet to track Teradata Database request arrivals and completions.
