Assigning User Roles

You can assign roles to as many users as needed. At least one user must be assigned the administrator role.

1.Select Manage > User Role Assignment.

The User Role Assignment dialog is displayed.

If the buttons on the dialog are unavailable it means you do not have permission to modify the user role assignments. Only a user assigned the Administrator role can modify the roles.

2.Click New.

The Select User and Role dialog is displayed.

3.Type a user name and then select the role you want to assign to that user.

When specifying the user name you must use the following format: domain\user.

If you are unsure of the correct domain and user name, you can view a list of all available domains and users by clicking Find User. The resulting dialog enables you to conduct either a quick search of just the Users organizational unit or a more comprehensive search of the entire active directory.

Role definitions:

Administrator: Full access to all features of the program. Only an administrator user can modify the roles assigned to other users.

CAUTION! If you assign the Administrator role to only one user, make sure you know how to log on to the console machine using that user. Otherwise it is possible to lock yourself out from certain features, with the only solution being to reinstall the program.

Full user: Access to all features except for the ability to administer roles.

Scan and report only: Can only perform patch scans and generate reports.

Patch deploy and report only: Can only perform patch deployments and generate reports.

Patch and Application Control deploy and report: Can perform patch and application control deployments and generate reports.

Reporting: Can only generate reports for:

Patch Report only

Application Control report only

Patch and Application Control report only

4.Click OK.

All configured users must have access to the database. If users without administrative rights on the console machine receive an error when starting Security Controls, it probably means they don't have the necessary SQL Server permissions. See SQL Server Preinstallation Notes for more information.
