Configure Administrative Roles
From the AdministrationRoles page, you can see all the built-in and custom roles for your organization. Creating custom roles enables you to tailor the access permissions around the security requirements for your organization.
Each role shows the role name and description, the number of users that are assigned to the role, and the date the role was created. Selecting the row for a role expands that row to display additional details and actions. The actions you can perform on the role vary for both built-in and custom roles.
While you cannot modify or delete any of the built-in roles, you can view the access privileges that are associated with the role. You can, however, add, modify, or delete a custom role. You can also block any role to prevent users that are assigned to that role from logging in to the ESM Console. Similarly, deleting a custom role removes the access privileges associated with that role from the ESM Console and prevents users from logging in to the ESM Console if they are assigned to that role. The ESM Console displays blocked roles with a red icon in the status column.
- From the ESM Console, select SettingsAdministrationRoles. The ESM Console displays all built-in and customized roles for your organization.
- Select and then Edit an existing role, or Add a new one.
- Define the Role Name and enter a Description.
- Select the Is Active option to enable the role or deselect the option to disable the role.
- Select a privilege to toggle through the different levels of access for that privilege. By default, all privileges are disabled. Selecting the privilege once changes the setting to Read Only access; selecting the privilege again changes the access level to read-write access (Enable); and selecting the privilege from an enabled state disables the privilege.
- Click Save. The ESM Console displays the new or modified role in the table.
- Assign the role to a user. See Configure Administrative Users, Groups, or Organizational Units.
