Control-M Automation API Authorizations

Through Control-M, you can control the access levels that each of your defined roles has to the various API functionalities and services. The following series of tables summarize the access levels that are required for the various API commands. You set these access levels through the role definitions in the Configuration domain.

Authentication Service Authorizations
