Roles and Permissions CRUD

Roles & Permissions have been become more complex with the Ivanti Asset Manager release. There are a few key roles like Asset Scanner, Storage Managers and Procurement Manager that need to be considered.

CRUD – Create Read Update Delete

A CRUD is an acronym for Create Read Update Delete, the basic four functions for record storage.

Notice that the Asset Admin and Asset Manager Roles are left off by design, as the focus for existing Ivanti Service Manager implementations are the SDM, SDA roles and Asset Admin/Manager roles typically introduce unnecessary complexity.

a19 Consulting – Best Practice System – Tip

  • Never Ever Delete – use a status value or hide checkbox
  • Limit Access – add more access as needed; less is more!
  • K.I.S.S.– Keep It Simple Smart people
  • Review during UAT – It is recommended to review the CRUD during UAT as core T.E.A.M. members will have had an opportunity to use the system and get familiar with the workspaces and their relationships. Furthermore Record and Field Level access permissions by Role, Team, Organizational Unit, or other criteria can be determined at that time.
