APM provides three security groups to which you can assign users:
APM User. The APM User creates and manages his own application entities, responds to surveys or requests for more information, and uses portlets to view application data. See Application Portfolio Management User's Guide for more information about the APM user's role.
APM Analyst. The APM Analyst has all the abilities of an APM User and can create and manage any APM entity, analyze applications using application sets, portlets, reports, graphing, and groupings, import and export entity data, and define portlets. See Application Portfolio Management Analyst's Guide for more information about the APM analyst's role.
APM Administrator. The APM Administrator installs, sets up, and maintains APM, defines users, customizes fields and validations for entities, and can create customized entities, data sources, workflows, validations, report types, and security groups. See The Role of the APM Administrator for more information about the APM administrator's role.
Note: Any user's ability can be affected by the roles assigned to the user and any entity-level or field-level settings assigned to the user.
Table 3-2. APM security group access grants shows the access grants assigned to each APM security group. For a description of PPM access grants, see Security Model Guide and Reference. For a description of APM-specific access grants, see Access Grants.
Note: View access grants provide read-only access to screens and entities. Users who do not have a view access grant cannot see certain workbenches and windows.
Edit access grants typically enable a user to view, create, modify, and delete entities. For example, if you have the Edit Requests access grant, you can delete requests that you have created.
