Enable a Power User to Edit a Target

An Administrator may grant a Power User Permission to modify one or more Targets.  This can be accomplished through inheritance from a Group to which the Power User is assigned or directly on the User Editor, as described in this article.

A Power User has the following capabilities that are automatically granted:

  • Access the Target View of any Metric for which View Access has been granted or that was created by this Power User
  • Create a new Target
  • Access the Target Editor of those Targets for which they have Edit Access or that were created by this Power User.  On the Target Editor, thIs Power User can change the settings, associate a Metric, add/upload Target data or delete the Target.
  • Associate a Metric with a Target if the Power User has at least View Access to the Metric

1. Access the User Editor

Confirm that this account is for a Power User

NOTE: In this example, a newly added Power User:

  1. Has No Privilege to Access Target View is present for this User; this Default Privilege was manually removed for purposes of this sample
  2. Has no Target Permissions
  3. Is not assigned to a Group

2. Add a Target for a User to modify

  1. Open the Power Users tab
  2. Click [+ Target for User to modify]
  3. The Add Target for User to Modify pop-op opens
  4. Select a Name of the Target from the drop-down list
  5. Click Save

3. Check the Targets User Can Modify Grids

4. Check the Assigned Privileges Grid

  1. Open the User Information tab
  2. Notice that, without any action being taken by the Administrator, the 'Access Target View' Privilege has been automatically granted to the User by virtue of the fact that Edit Access has been granted to at least one Target
