User and User Group Permissions in exMon

Created by: Kristinn Magnusson

In this article, you will read about user and user group permissions in exMon. To be able to access exMon, user permissions must be set by an exMon administrator.

The type of permissions a user can have are:

  • Administrator
    • Global administrator has access to everything in the Desktop client and Portal
  • System Administrator
    • Users can view all systems on the Portal and client if the user has the developer role selected too
  • Process Administrator
    • Users can run processes, execution jobs or single tasks on process maps they have access to in the Portal
  • Process User
    • Users can run processes and execution jobs on process maps they have access to in the Portal
  • Tester
    • Users have access to Development and Test environments on the Portal
  • Deployment Administrator
    • Users can deploy tasks to Test and Production
  • Developer
    • Users can open the Desktop client with limited access to systems dependent on System Administrator/Systems below

Furthermore, a user can be given special permissions:

  • View selected system(s) on Portal/Client
  • View and manage all exceptions in the selected system(s) on Portal
  • Run selected processes
  • Run selected execution jobs

User Groups

A user can also be a part of a user group. Users inherit permissions from the user groups they are members of. There are two types of User groups:

  • Active Directory Group – Consists of all exMon users that are members of the selected Windows Active Directory Group
  • Manual exMon User Group – Consists of all exMon users that have been manually selected into the user group

Active directory groups can therefore be a quick and efficient way to give permissions to a specific division of your company. If a Windows user is removed from Windows Active Directory Group its exMon user counterpart will lose permissions gained from that group.

Note: Users do not have to be specifically added to exMon before they log in. If they are a part of an Active Directory group and they try to open either exMon Portal or exMon Data Governance, they will automatically be added as users in exMon.
