Configure a Panorama Administrator Account

Administrative accounts specify Administrative Roles and authentication for Panorama administrators. The service that you use to assign roles and perform authentication determines whether you add the accounts on Panorama, on an external server, or both (see Administrative Authentication). For an external authentication service, you must configure an authentication profile before adding an administrative account (see Configure Administrative Accounts and Authentication). If you already configured the authentication profile or you will use the authentication mechanism that is local to Panorama, perform the following steps to add an administrative account on Panorama.
You can’t add an administrator account to a Dedicated Log Collector (M-Series appliance in Log Collector mode). Only the predefined administrator account with the default username (admin) is available on Dedicated Log Collectors.
  1. Select
    Panorama
    Administrators
    and
    Add
    an account.
  2. Enter a user
    Name
    for the administrator.
  3. Select an
    Authentication Profile
    or sequence if you configured either for the administrator.
    This is required if Panorama will use Kerberos SSO or an external service for authentication.
    If Panorama will use local authentication, set the
    Authentication Profile
    to
    None
    and enter a
    Password
    and then
    Confirm Password
    .
  4. Select the
    Administrator Type
    :
    • Dynamic
      —Select a predefined administrator role.
    • Custom Panorama Admin
      —Select the Admin Role
      Profile
      you created for this administrator (see Configure an Admin Role Profile).
    • Device Group and Template Admin
      —Map access domains to administrative roles as described in the next step.
  5. (
    Device Group and Template Admin only
    ) In the Access Domain to Administrator Role section, click
    Add
    , select an Access Domain from the drop-down (see Configure an Access Domain), click the adjacent Admin Role cell, and select an Admin Role profile.
  6. Click
    OK
    to save your changes.
  7. Select
    Commit
    Commit to Panorama
    and
    Commit
    your changes.
