Appliance Administrator permissions

The Appliance Administrator is responsible for configuring and maintaining the appliance, including the following tasks:

  • Racks and stacks the appliance.
  • Configures the appliance.
  • (Optional) Sets up and uses the virtual appliance for initial setup, maintenance, backup, and recovery. For more information, see Using the virtual appliance and web management console.
  • Troubleshoots performance, hardware, and networking.
  • Creates and monitors the status of a clustered environment.
  • Manages licenses, certificates, backups, and sessions settings.

Asset Administrator permissions

An Asset Administrator manages all partitions, assets, and accounts:

  • Creates (or imports) assets and accounts.
  • Creates partitions and profiles.
  • Delegates partition ownership to users. A delegated partition owner has a subset of permissions that an Asset Administrator has. That is, the delegated partition owner is authorized to manage a specific partition and the assets and accounts assigned to that partition.

  • Assigns assets to partitions.
  • Manages account password rules.

  • Manages ownership for assets, accounts, and partitions.

NOTE: Asset Administrators can only view the user object history for their own account.

Auditor permissions

The Auditor administrator has read-only access to all features, and has the ability to review all access request activity:

  • Monitor appliance information
  • Review everything
  • Export object history
  • Run entitlement reports

There are two additional permission types available once the Auditor role is selected that will help provide limited auditor permissions should you prefer not to use the all-encompassing Auditor role (which incorporates both permission types):

On some pages, it may appear the administrator can edit data, but the change cannot be saved. A message like the following will display: Authorization is required for this request.
