Managing Console User Accounts

A user account is required to log in to the Avalanche Console. User accounts allow you to define who can access components and perform tasks. Each user is assigned to a home folder, which defines the folders the user has authority to manage.

There are two types of accounts:

Administrator accounts can access and modify all the configurations in Avalanche associated with their home folder or any sub-folders.

Normal accounts are assigned to specific folders or profiles and have specific permissions associated with those folders and profiles.

Avalanche is installed with a default administrator account amcadmin with the password admin. Ivanti recommends you create a new password for this account once you log in.

When a normal account is created, assign permissions to that account. These permissions can apply to all profiles of a type (for example, all alert profiles), to specific tools (for example, Remote Control), or folder management and deployment. You can also assign permissions on a profile-by-profile basis by authorizing the user for individual profiles.

As an alternative to assigning permissions to each normal account, you can assign permissions to a user group. Each normal account that belongs to the user group has the permissions that are assigned to the group. If a user is removed from the group, he no longer has the associated permissions. A normal account can belong to more than one user group at a time.

If your network uses Active Directory or LDAP for user access, you can set up integrated login for Avalanche. Avalanche will accept the usernames and passwords accepted on your network. After a user has logged in to Avalanche with integrated login, you can assign him permissions for components and tasks.
