Creating and Configuring Administrator Roles

You can use the Administrators > Admin Roles pages to set default session and user interface options for delegated administrator roles.

To create individual administrator accounts, you must add the users through the appropriate authentication server (not the role). For example, to create an individual administrator account, you may use settings in the Authentication > Auth. Servers > Administrators > Users page of the admin console. For detailed instructions on how to create users on the Administrators server and other local authentication servers. For instructions on how to create users on third-party servers, see the documentation that comes with that product.

To create an administrator role:

  1. In the admin console, choose Administrators > Admin Roles.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Click New Role to create a new administrator role with the default settings.
    • Select the check box next to an existing administrator role and click Duplicate to copy the role and its custom permissions. Note that you cannot duplicate the system default roles (.Administrators and .Read-Only Administrators).
  1. Enter a name (required) and description (optional) for the new role and click Save Changes.
  2. Modify restrictions, session options, and UI options according to your requirements.

    Note: If you select one of the system’s default administrator roles (.Administrators or .Read-Only Administrators), you can only modify settings in the General tab (since the default system administrators roles always have access to the functions defined through the System, Users, Administrators, and Resource Policies tabs).

    You cannot delete the .Administrators and .Read Only Administrators roles since they are default roles.
