4.1.1 The Classic Administration Mode

Quest Software delivers the following administration profiles:

4.1.2 The Advanced Administration Mode

In advanced administration mode, the administration profiles are not limited to eight categories: you can create your own administration profiles by selecting the wanted administration rights.

4.1.3 Administration Role Inheritance

The tree structure root is the IT Security Manager (or primary administrator), which corresponds to a specific user created in the LDAP directory during the installation of the solution. It is a super-administrator who can manage all the objects in the directory and who has all the rights relating to the general configuration of the product.
For security reasons, upon the first start of the Quest ESSO Console, he must authenticate using a Security Module or a pass phrase, depending on the protection mode that has been selected during the installation (for more information on the protection modes, see Section 2., "Authenticating to Quest ESSO Console and Managing Protection Modes").

4.2 Delegating Administration Roles

In the Directory panel, select the user to whom you want to delegate your administration role.
In the Administration tab, click Delegate.

Click Apply.
Managed users restrictions button: this button allows you to restrict the number of users the administrator can administer, by displaying the Managed users window.
Audit visibility restrictions button: if the selected user is an Auditor administrator or has the "Audit: Visualization" administration rights (advanced administration mode), this button allows you to define the population the administrator has the right to audit.
By default, the Audit Populations area is empty. It means the administrator can audit all the objects of the directory.
To restrict the Auditor right to a set of audit populations, use one of the following buttons:
Select button: this button displays the list of audit populations that has already been defined in Quest ESSO Console (for more information on audit populations, see Section 15.2, "Defining an Audit Population").
Select the audit populations to which you want to restrict the auditor right and click
The selected population(s) appears in the
Audit Populations area.
Browse button: this button allows you to select the group, organization or directory to which you want to restrict the auditor right.
Use the
Browse tab to browse the directory tree structure or use the Search tab to find the group/organization/directory according to its name, and click OK.
If the selected object is not already marked as an audit population, a dialog box allows you to directly mark it.
The selected population(s) appears in the
Audit Populations area.
In Classic administration mode:
Select the check boxes corresponding to the administration profiles you want to delegate to the user (for more details on existing administration profiles, see Section 4.1.1 The Classic Administration Mode).
