TeemIp Documentation for Administrators

As previously stated, TeemIp has been built on top of iTop frame work, the world famous open source ITSM and CMDB solution. As a consequence, administring TeemIp is very similar to administring iTop and TeemIp's administrator manual extensively refers to iTop's administrator manual.

Let's just list here 2 key points related to TeemIp, before listing the links to the different iTop admin subjects.

Licensing

TeemIp is licensed under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License Version 3 as published by the Free Software Foundation. This gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify TeemIp under certain conditions. Read the ’license.txt’ file in the TeemIp distribution. TeemIp is provided AS IS with NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING THE WARRANTY OF DESIGN, MERCHANTABILITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  

Fresh Installation

As you know, you may install TeemIp as a standalone application or as an iTop extension.

Should you decide to use TeemIp standalone, a few preparation steps will be needed before running the installation wizard.

Should you decide to enhance iTop with TeemIp extension, you may refer to the IPAM for iTop extension page.

Upgrade

TeemIp upgrade process being the exact same one than iTop upgrade process, please, refer to iTop's How to upgrade page for that operation.

User profiles

Next to the standard user profiles already embedded within iTop, TeemIp brings its own set of profiles:

Profile Description Extension
Admin Tools Manager Has the rights to the Administration menu. Must be combined with another profile
Audit Manager Has the rights to create and modify Audit rules. Must be combined with another profile
CMDB Guest Person with read only rights (no bulk read allowed) on CMDB objects (only)

And of course, TeemIp alters some of the iTop profiles to grant them access to the specific TeemIp objects:

Profile Change
Configuration Manager Adds R/W rights on TeemIp network objects, IP addresses and links with IP Objects
Document author Adds R/W rights on links with IP Objects

TeemIp Newsroom

Important news related to the TeemIp project are provided to TeemIp administrators through the TeemIp newsroom. This communication channel comes in addition to the one provided by iTop (described here).

When logged as an administrator, the “news” icon will tell you if they are any new messages still unread.

Clicking on the icon will list these messages. Optionally, links will allow you to read all messages already sent by iTop or TeemIp in specific pages.

You may deactivate TeemIp newsroom through the General Configuration file. In the module section, just adds the following lines (if not already present) ans set the 'enabled' parameter to false.

'teemip-newsroom-provider' => array (
	'enabled' => false,
),

The following list provides direct links to the admin chapters described in the iTop's admin pages.
