Purpose

This plugin replaces the default User Management in Cacti and Provides a brand new User Management with much more usable Permissions Management. In addition, it overlays Group Management onto Cacti.

Features

  • New Permissions Interface
  • New User Group Permissions
  • Better Tabbed Interface

Prerequisites

In order to use this plugin you have to be running at least Cacti 0.8.7h and PIA 3.0. In addition, for Cacti 0.8.7h, you must apply the patches in the 'patches-0.8.7h' directory to the main Cacti install.

Installation

Like any other plugin. Copy the tgz file to the plugins directory, unzip/untar it. Then goto the Plugin Management interface and Install and Enable the plugin. From that point, the logged in user will see the 'User Groups' Console pick, and when going to the 'User Management' pick will receive the new interface.

NOTE: You must also replace the Cacti files for your version of Cacti with the files in the pathches_XXX directory. Currently only 0.8.7h and 0.8.7i are supported.

Usage

Pretty much self explanatory. With the exception that Cacti permissions are a bit confusing.

Screenshots

When viewing User or Group permissions, the UI looks almost identical. The examples below are for a User Group. This plugin replaces the current User Administration page in Cacti.
