Patch Manager uses security roles to grant or deny access to application functionality to console users. Each role grants access to specific functionality in the application, so you can be quite granular with your security management architecture.

You can think for the Patch Manager security roles as being divided into the following categories:

To modify the members in a security role:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, expand Patch Manager System Configuration, and then select Security and User Management.
  2. In the center pane, click the Security Roles tab.
  3. Select the role you want to modify.
  4. If you want to add users to the role, click Add in the Actions pane (right), and then specify the users you want to add:
    1. In the left pane of the Select Users and Groups window, browse the left pane until the user or group you want to add is in the upper-right pane.
    2. In the upper-right pane, select the user or group you want to add, and then click Add selected.
    3. Repeat these steps for each user or group you want to add.
    4. Click OK.
  5. If you want to remove a user or group from the role, select the user you want to remove in the lower-center pane, and then click Remove in the Actions pane (right).
