EM13c : Insufficient privileges to deploy Plug-in on Agent using Non SYSMAN user

(Doc ID 2420003.1)

Last updated on JULY 06, 2018

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 12.1.0.4.0 to 13.3.0.0.0 [Release 12.1 to 13.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Enterprise Manager (EM) Cloud Control, Users with the "Plugin Agent Administration" cannot deploy plugins on the agent. They instead receive the error "Insufficient Privileges to deploy plugin on management agent".

Granting the users or the role of "EM_PLUGIN_AGENT_ADMIN" allows the users to deploy plugin. But this also gives access to a full list - ie, all targets monitored by EM Console as this contains VIEW ANY TARGET privilege. This leads to security issues at many customer sites to block the admins to view all the targets.
