Set up administrative access to each application that you want to configure and customize.
Before you begin
Perform this task only if you want to administer the Home page or if you have installed Blogs.
About this task
Use the WebSphere® Application Server Integrated Solutions Console to grant yourself or others administrative access to an application.
Without administrative access to Blogs, you cannot configure a home page for the Blogs application. Without administrative access to the Home page, you cannot add, enable, or disable widgets. The administrator role is also useful for determining who is allowed to read server metrics statistics.
To configure administrative access to an application, complete the following steps:
- From the WebSphere Application Server Integrated Solutions Console, select Applications -> Application Types -> WebSphere enterprise applications.
- Find and click the link to the application that you want to configure. For example, click Home page.
- Click the Security role to user/group mapping link.
- To map a user to the administrative role, select the check box beside the admin role and then click Map Users.
- In the Search String box, type the name of the person whom you would like to set as an administrator, and then click Search. If the user exists in the LDAP directory, it is found and displayed in the Available list.
- Select the name from the Available box, and then move it into the Selected column by clicking the right arrow button.
- Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to add more users to the administrative role.
- Click OK.
- To map a user to the administrative role for another application, repeat steps 1–7.
- From the Enterprise Applications -> <application> -> Security role to user/group mapping page, click OK, and then click Save to save the changes.
- Synchronize and restart all your WebSphere Application Server instances.
