HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Defining users and roles

Define and manage users and associate them to security roles.

About this task

Access to Self-Service Catalog is based on roles. Users having a specific role can access the catalogs and services assigned to that role.
To create and assign roles, log in to Dashboard Application Services Hub and run the following steps:
  1. From the navigation toolbar, click the search glass icon, on top of the toolbar. In the search field, enter WebSphere Administrative Console to open the administrative console.
  2. Click Launch WebSphere administrative console.
  3. From the administrative console navigation tree, click Users and Groups > Manage users to create a new user on the file registry (do not create it on the operative system).
For more information about creating and assigning roles, see the Dashboard Application Services Hub online help by clicking the "?" (question mark) in top-right corner of the panels.


  1. From the Dynamic Workload Console, define the roles that can access the catalogs.
  2. Include these roles in the groups to which the engines on which you plan to create catalogs and services are shared. Only catalogs and services defined on shared engines are available for Self-Service Catalog users.
  3. Ensure that the credentials of these engines are shared.
  4. From the Self-Service Catalog application on your mobile, associate the required roles to catalogs and services, as described in Authorizing users to access catalogs and services.
