Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Assigning Device Groups to a User

  • NOTE: Only OmeAdministrators are allowed to assign device groups to a user. Device groups can only be assigned to users who are members of the OmeSiteAdministrators role.
  • NOTE: If a device group is not assigned to a user, it only restricts the user from performing system updates or running remote tasks on that device group. It does not hide or remove that device group from the device tree in the Devices portal.
To assign device groups to a user:
  1. Click Settings > Permissions . The device group Permissions portal page is displayed.
  2. In the Manage Device Group Permissions pane, select the user to whom you want to assign device groups. The Device Groups for Tasks and Patch Targeting section is displayed in the right-side panel.
  3. In the device groups tree-view, select the check boxes appropriate to the device group(s) you want to assign to the selected user. If you want to remove a device group assignment that you made previously, clear the check boxes of the appropriate device groups.
  4. Click Apply.
    • NOTE: An OmeSiteAdministrators task target remains ‘as is’ when the task was created. If the OmeAdministrators change the OmeSiteAdministrators device group permissions, the task targets are not modified. Changing an OmeSiteAdministrators device group permissions does not change tasks the OmeSiteAdministrators created earlier.
    • NOTE: Only Server, RAC, or custom device groups that are assigned to OmeSiteAdministrators are available to OmeSiteAdministrators for remote or system update tasks. To make any other device groups available to the OmeSiteAdministrators for remote or system update tasks, you must create a custom device group which includes other device groups and assign it to the OmeSiteAdministrators.
