Understanding User Access

Control Manager access control consists of the following four sections.

Table 1. Control Manager User Access Options

Section

Description

My Account

The My Account screen contains all the account information that Control Manager has for a specific user.

The information on the My Account screen varies from user to user.

User Accounts

The User Accounts screen displays all Control Manager users. The screen also provides the options for users to create and maintain Control Manager user accounts.

Use these functions to define clear areas of responsibility for users by restricting access rights to certain managed products and limiting what actions users can perform on the managed products. The functions are:

  • Execute

  • Configure

  • Edit Directory

User Roles

The User Roles screen displays all Control Manager user roles. The screen also provides the options for users to create and maintain Control Manager user roles.

User roles define which areas of the Control Manager web console a user can access.

User Groups

The User Groups screen contains Control Manager groups and provides options for creating groups.

Control Manager uses groups as an easy method to send notifications to a number of users without having to select the users individually. Control Manager groups do not allow administrators to create a group that shares the same access rights.

Note:

Assign users with different access rights and privileges to permit the delegation of certain management tasks without compromising security.
