The LEM console users in the Monitor role have read-only access to the LEM console. By default, their Filters list on the Monitor tab contains the same default and standard filters as any other user. However, you can modify their filters.

  1. Open the LEM Console and log in as admin or under another user name with an admin role.
  2. Edit the user role to temporarily assign an admin role.
  3. Instruct the user to log in using their Windows profile.
  4. Change the filters as desired, deleting unnecessary filters.
  5. Log out of the user console window.
  6. From the user computer, log in with the user credentials.
  7. From your admin login, change the user role back to Monitor.
  8. Click the Monitor view.

    If you created and exported the filters in a previous procedure, you can add new filters to the user Filters list by creating or importing the filter as appropriate. To remove a filter from the user Filter list, point to the filter and click x that appears to the right.

  9. Log out of your LEM Manager.

    When the user logs on to your LEM manager with the same computer and Windows profile using their LEM user account, they will only see the filters you specified above.
