New 5.2 Security table

In Version 5.2 we are introducing a new way for Admin Users to set the Privileges and Permissions that can be granted within your Metric Insights installation. It also provides a means to define which of these allowed Privileges can be assigned by Power Users.

Goals

  • Support Admin's ability to Include/Exclude Privileges from an instance
  • Allow Admin to specify those Privileges that a Power User may/may not grant to others
  • Modify Group and User Editor display of Privileges to include Grouping 

 

Access the table from Admin > Utilities > Privileges

The Table will be presented for editing

  1. The Table is presented sorted by Privilege name, but you can limit the display by selecting a specific Group
  2. Include:
    • 'Y' = Privilege is available for an Admin to assign
    • 'N' = Privilege is not available for assignment within the system by anyone
  3. Power User Can Assign:
    • 'Y' = Privilege is available for assignment by a Power User to other Users
    • 'N' = Privilege is not available for assignment by Power User (may be available to Admin users based on previous column value
  4. Admin Users can edit any Privilege by selecting the Edit icon on corresponding row
  1. The choices are pretty easy!
  2. Obviously, the PU cannot assign if the Privilege is not included
