In syslog-ng Store Box (SSB), user rights can be assigned to usergroups. SSB has numerous usergroups defined by default, but custom user groups can be defined as well. Every group has a set of privileges: which pages of the SSB web interface it can access, and whether it can only view (read) or also modify (read & write/perform) those pages or perform certain actions.

Figure 77: AAA > Access Control — Managing SSB users

NOTE: Every group has either read or read & write/perform privileges to a set of pages.

The admin user is available by default and has all privileges, except that it cannot remotely access the shared logspaces. It is not possible to delete this user.
