Understanding Security for Diagnostics Framework

To gather information using Diagnostics Framework, you must have access to:

  • The Diagnostics Framework pages.

  • The WEBLIB_PTDIAG web library.

You use the PeopleTools Security pages to select or create a permission list to which you can add the necessary permissions for these elements. That permission list should ultimately be assigned through a role to the users who will run diagnostics.

Granting Access to the Diagnostics Framework Pages

To run diagnostics, you must have access to these Diagnostics Framework pages:

  • PT_DIAG_PLUGIN

  • PT_DIAG_FRAME_REG

To set up security access to these pages:

  1. Select select PeopleTools, then select Security, then select Permission & Roles, then select Permission Lists.

  2. Select or define a permission list to which you want to add Diagnostics Framework permissions.

    See Understanding Permission Lists.

  3. Access the Pages page for the selected permission list.

Granting Access to the WEBLIB_PTDIAG Web Library
