Roles

Top  Previous  Next

 

Roles allow you to delegate subsets of administrative privileges to users in the mSuite system.  For example, you may decide that the Help Desk staff can access mSuite and perform only certain user management functions, or that only your Security administrator can remote wipe a lost or stolen device.   These things are achieved through Roles.

 

To delegate some set of administration privileges (i.e. the ability to carry out the administrative tasks described in this guide) to a user, firstly create or import the user in mSuite.  Now assign the user to a role, they will be able to log on to and use the mSuite Administration Console to perform the tasks that they have been delegated.

 

By default the system has three Roles configured. You can create other Roles if needed.

 

1.Full Administrator
2.Help Desk
3.Security Administrator

 

Please review the defaults to make sure that you are happy with the rights conferred to each role.
