Configuration Manager 2012 adding Custom Security Role – Importing Computers

Great post by John Vintzel (ExEDS GM Account) on adding a cust Security Role into Configuration Manager. By default there is no built-in security role (apart from Full Administrator) to import devices into CM.

Here are the steps required:

  1. Create XML file with the code at the bottom of the page
  2. Navigate to Administration > Security > Security Roles in the CM Console
  3. Select Import Security Role from the ribbon
  4. Browse to the XML, click OK
  5. You will now see a new custom security role ‘Computer Import Manager’

XML Code:

<SMS_Roles>
<SMS_Role CopiedFromID=”SMS00001″ RoleName=”Import Computer Role” RoleDescription=”Add this role to an administrative user. Associate this security role specifically with All Systems.”>
<Operations>
<Operation GrantedOperations=”129″ ObjectTypeID=”1″ />
<Operation GrantedOperations=”524289″ ObjectTypeID=”6″ />
</Operations>
</SMS_Role>
</SMS_Roles>
