Our cacti installation is used both internally and by (a few of) our customers. What we're trying to achieve is that we can easy grant access to the graphs of a specific customer to the user account of that customer.
Ideally the graph tree structure would look like this:

Code:
Root
  |_Customers
  |  |_Customer_01
  |  |  |_Customer_01_Host_01
  |  |  |_Customer_01_Host_02
  |  |_Customer_02
  |  |  |_Customer_02_Host_01
  |  |_Customer_03
  |_Internal_Subtree_01
  |  |_Internal_Subtree_01_Host01
  |_Internal_Subtree_02
     |_Internal_Subtree_02_Host01
     |_Internal_Subtree_02_Host02


Currently building up this tree isn't the problem. The problem arrises when we want set the tree permissions for a given user account. In the user management console it only lists the (sub)trees directly under the root, but not the subtrees below them. Furthermore we don't really want Customer_01 to see the complete Customers tree, since they have no business knowing our other customers even if they dont have access to the actual graphs. So when Customer_01 logs into cacti, we want him/her to just the graphs/hosts/etc below Root->Customers->Customer_01.

Right now the solution we're using is to put the Customer_XY trees directly
under the root. But this clutters the tree too much to our likings, expecially with the number of customers that want access to their graphs growing drastically.

I hope the dev'ers wont kill me over this ;-) Since I started with an email to the list, was then instructed to post here, and now you're suggesting to post there. But the dev'ers seem nice enough to not mind it too much (I hope): http://bugs.cacti.net/view.php?id=1144

Well, that's the way the Cacti Group currently implements the "feature request acknowledgement workflow cycle" (wow, isn't it a nice title?). If your bug/feature request is assigned to any developer, it is very likely that it will be implemented.

I'd also love to see the ability to grant permissions to sub-trees. Is there a 'vote' option for new enhancements?

No vote required. We discussed this lately. If I remember correct, it has been assigned (plain text: we will try to implement it some time in the future; perhaps with next release which will be 088. But it's not on my personal todo list)

The bug associated with this wish has indeed been assigned to cigamit by The Witness.

Looking forward to see this having been implemented!

I honestly can't say. Unfortunately, 087g took more time than anticipated. And it's holiday season (at least on the north half of the globe).

I would love to see this feature implemented also. We're exactly in the same boat; currently having to build out unique tree sets for each user to see their graphs/hosts.

This was on target for 0.8.8 but which was due first quarter of 2010, but things have been quiet.

Hi,

Any news regarding this feature? from what I can understand from the dev roadmap this is to be implemented in 1.1.0 in the third quarter of 2012. Is this correct?

Does anyone know how to do this now, or any points where I could get started on this mod.

Best regards.

Before my tip a warn everybody to be careful with template modifications on already created graphs! Always backup!

So...because you can add permissions to user by graph template I duplicated the graph template "Interface - Traffic (bits/sec)" and renamed to "Interface - Traffic (bits/sec) Customer"
so you can give access to customer graphs which created with this specific customer template. With a lots of user it can be a pain but adding graphs one by one is more painful. On already created customer graphs I switch the graph template to a specific customer traffic clone graph.
