Safely Manage Security Settings in a Sandbox Environment
When the wrong permissions get assigned to clients and groups in your TM1 environment, this
can cause serious issues such as, the inability to access the TM1 content used to accomplish tasks
or gaining access to sensitive information.
Security information in TM1 is disjointed, forcing you to search multiple places to find all the
details you need about security access. Agni’s Security Sandbox can transform hours of
debugging into minutes, as it lays out all of the information you need in one location.
Additionally, you can visualize the results of a proposed security change to see if it impacts any
clients or groups.
Apply Security Changes with TI Processes
Now that you’ve experimented with security changes in the sandbox, you can generate a TI
process in Agni to quickly apply them. Agni provides the ability to script your security changes to
easily deploy them across your TM1 servers. This allows for a lot of flexibility and can fit into a
variety of workflows, including ones that require higher-level TM1 users to approve security
changes before they are finalized. Additionally, these security changes can easily be rolled back

Document and Audit User Licenses
It is imperative to have documentation of all the permissions assigned to each TM1 user. You
wouldn’t want to risk paying huge fees associated with license violations such as incorrect
security configurations that give users more access than they need. You also don’t want to
overpay for licenses that aren’t being used. Unfortunately, the approach to do this task in TM1
with security rules costs too much time.
Agni’s Security Export provides documentation of all your TM1 users and their permissions.
You can use this information to document data access, ensure you are in compliance with
government regulations and maintain the appropriate types of TM1 licenses for your user
Quickly Find What You Need with the Powerful Search Engine and
The slow and clunky process of searching your TM1 environment makes navigating and
finding information a very painful undertaking. Agni is a powerful tool that allows you to
quickly find the information you need to complete your tasks more efficiently.
For example, when performing an audit on incorrectly assigned writeback capabilities on
websheets in your TM1 environments, you would have to navigate through folders full of TM1
content in Architect and comb through each object one by one. You would then have to
manually keep record of the websheets as you check them. This task of running an audit in
TM1 can result in a tedious, time-consuming, and error-prone process.
Agni solves this agonizing auditing process by finding all the websheets that allow for
writeback capabilities in your TM1 environment.
