Managing Security Entities

Foglight manages users’ access through groups and roles. Each user belongs to one or more groups and each group can have one or more roles. The set of tasks that a user has access to depends on the roles that are assigned the groups that user belongs to.

This section contains reference information on commands that can be used to manage security settings in Foglight. For complete information about the security principles in Foglight, see the Administration and Configuration Help.

connection_options

Specifies the user name and password for the Foglight Management Server, as well as the machine name and port number, if necessary. Alternatively, fglcmd can retrieve this information from a user-specific properties file.
