User Views

The User Views tool enables you to create customized views of the Control-M interface. You can create User Views that are specific to a user by enabling visibility or restricting access to a domain and job properties according to their role and permissions in your organization, as described in Creating a User View.

If you want a user to monitor the jobs and perform monitoring actions when a problem occurs in a job run, but you do not want the user to edit or change the job definitions in the parameters, you can disable the Edit Job option in the Job Action section, which prevents the user from making changes to the job definition.

There are several sample User View profiles included in Control-M, that you can use and edit, or create new profiles to support your user roles and requirements. A Full View profile is included by default. You cannot edit or delete this profile.

The following video describes User Views:
