Config Manager Ticker App - Help needed

Amesy86Amesy86 IT Monkey ✭Member IT Monkey ✭

Hi Guys,

I need to be able to allow users outside of IT to send announcements to certain Device Collections. I have followed the Instructions in the Config PDF but because I do not want these users to be able to see anything in SCCM other than the Collections they need to post Announcements to. I have removed the Read Only status on all sections other than Collection - Deploy Client Settings and Inventory Reports - Modify, which has locked all SCCM down to just the 5 collections they need, but it has also removed the Announcements button from the ribbon. I can't now find which setting will enable that again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

James.

    I moved this to the proper area, which would be the Free Community Solutions - Configuration Manager apps area. This specific area here is for feature request specifically, not questions. I know, it doesn't really matter to you, but it makes management easier of the threads. I'll respond to the post over there now.

    Hi James,

    Wow, I've not delved that far in the Configuration Manager role-based administration feature to see exactly what permissions are required in order to see the Announcements action on a device collection. Certainly you need the two that you reference to use it. But I'd also assume that you need some normal Configuration Manager rights to see some of the ribbon actions.

    As a workaround until we get this analyzed, would it be possible for you to assign those users the Read-Only Analyst role? That's what I was using in my webinar, then I added the two specific rights needed in order to be able to get the Announcement feature to work. I know it lets them see everything in the console, but they can't modify anything at all, other than what you change. If you then add the two rights in the doc, then they can see everything, as well as create announcements.

    I know that is not your end goal ,but it would get them working while we dig into the permissions to see what else is needed to get the Announcement action to appear. Obviously you removed something that was needed, I just am not sure what it is outside of the two we do document.

    Oh, also, if you can send me the exact permissions that you have on your security scope, I can start there and see if I can figure it out for you. If you'd rather email me directly with that info, feel free to do so at [email protected]
