Add Aperture Administrators

Initially, to create new administrator accounts on the local database on the Aperture service, you must be logged in as the administrator with the Super Admin role, which is the role assigned to the user specified in the order fulfillment email. With the Super Admin role, you can create additional administrator accounts, assign administrator roles and create teams.
As an admin of a team, you can create other admin accounts with access to the SaaS applications assigned to your team but only a Super Admin role can create other Super Admin accounts. You do not need to create administrator accounts for end users who use the application to create or share content within each SaaS application.
  1. Select SettingsAdmin Accounts and Add Administrator.
  2. Enter the Name and Email address of the new administrator.
  3. Choose an Authentication Type:
    • Local Authentication— You can select Configure Google Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to grant admin access only after successfully presenting a passcode pair or QR barcode as evidence (additional factor) to authenticate to the Aperture service. If you enable MFA on the Aperture service, all administrator accounts included the local database will be required to provide the additional factor to log in.
    • Single Sign-On (SSO)—SAML SSO authentication enables you to grant admin access with seamless authentication using a single set of credentials. This option eliminates the need for application or service specific passwords. Configure SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) Authentication to activate this option. If you enable SSO, you do not have to create administrator accounts on the local database.
  4. Select the administrative Role:
    You can select any of the following predefined roles, or you can Add a Custom Admin Role for enabling more granular access to the functional areas of the Aperture service. See Predefined Role Privileges for the list of functional areas configured for each predefined role.
    • Super Admin—A read-write administrator account that allows full functionality within the Aperture service, including global account settings, creating administrator accounts, and assigning administrator roles.
    • Admin—A read-write administrator account that allows full functionality within the Aperture service, including the ability to automatically or manually remediate risks and create additional administrator accounts.
    • Limited Admin—An administrator account that allows the administrator to assess incidents and remediate risks. This administrator cannot access the Aperture service settings or modify policy rules.
    • Read Only—An administrator account that allows the administrator to view information collected by the Aperture service and generate reports but does not allow the administrator to make changes. For example, this administrator can access incidents, but cannot remediate risks.
    • Custom Role—An administrator account with custom permissions to allow specific management tasks that meet your organizational needs.
  5. Select the Team to assign the administrator to.
    If you have not created any custom teams, assign the administrator to the predefined All Apps team.
