Admins

The Adminstab lets you create, delete, reset password, and manage 2-Step Verification for administrators to manage the Access portal. It also lets you activate and deactivate (enable or disable) the administrators.

The Reset Password and 2-Step verification is not available with Ivanti Access and Ivanti Neurons for MDM portal.

Admins added in the Ivanti Access tab will not have any Cloud role. They will only see the Ivanti Access tab. Admins added in the Ivanti Neurons for MDM tab may have Ivanti Access roles as well as Cloud roles depending on what they are assigned.
