Properties and choose
Security tab and then
Add the desired role.
The role will need to be given at least
Altiris System Permissions and

There are some other permissions to be aware of. You can set the appropriate permissions to create the tasks, but if you attempt to configure them, you may not be able to apply them to collections or computers. In order for the UI to properly display the resources to select collections or computers to apply tasks to, the correct permissions must be set on the resource management tab as well. The list of permissions is below. This is not a minimum list, based on the breadth of jobs that Task Server can complete. These permissions can be reduced, based solutions installed, and job/task requirements. Set the following permissions on the Resource Management Folder:
Altiris Collection Permissions: Run Task On Collection, Apply Agent Settings, Apply Software Delivery Tasks
Altiris System Permissions: Read, Read Permissions
