Grant Permission to Access an Environment

To be able to fully access API Manager operations within an environment, users must have the API Manager Environment Administrator permission. An API Manager Environment Administrator role is associated with tasks performed only in API Manager. You can change permissions for API Manager-related operations from Anypoint Access Management.

Regarding roles, note that:

  • Roles and permissions assigned to a user in one particular business group are independent of the roles and permissions assigned to that same user in other business groups.

  • Roles are business group-specific, so ensure that you are in the correct business group for which to manage roles by clicking the menu next to your user icon.

The following diagram illustrates the tasks enabled by having each permission:

permission relationships

In this diagram, note that an Environment Administrator has access to all the functionalities and permissions. Outer permissions provide permission to the inner permissions. For example, Manage Alerts gives permission to View Alerts and to View API Configuration.

API Manager supports the following additional environment-level permissions:
