Introduction:

Workload Automation 11.3.6 SP5 introduced a new EEM security policy type, as-sendevent.

It will check if a user has access to issue specific EVENTS via the sendevent command.

Question:

We adjusted the as-sendevent policies such that user1 should have all actions and user2 would have some restrictions, such as no access to perform FORCE_STARTJOB or KILLJOB or the JOB_ON_HOLD event types.  The EEM permission checker suggests we have configured this correctly as does autosec_test and running tests using the command line "sendevent".  Yet from within WCC when user2 selects a job they see NO sendevent options available to them.  Is there something we are missing?

 

Environment:
Workload Automation AE 11.3.6 sp5Workload Automation Control Center (WCC) 11.4 sp4Embedded Entitlements Manager (EEM) 12.51.x
Answer:

In order to issue EVENTS against jobs from within WCC a user must have access within EEM's WCC policy ConfigurationControlEventDefault.

 

See:

EEM -> Application set to WCC0004 -> Manage Access Policies -> Access Policies -> ConfigurationControl -> ConfigurationControlEventDefault
