Maintain Installation Privileges

Administrators are responsible for determining those Privileges 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 Groups to which the Power User has Edit Access
  • Modify Group and User Editor display of Privileges to include a Grouping¬†filter

See the list of Privileges here.

1. Access the Permissions Grid (Admin > Utilities > Privileges)

2. Edit Privileges:  Admin > System > Privileges

  1. The Table is presented sorted by Privilege name, but you can limit the display by selecting a specific grouping
  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 a Privilege by selecting the Edit icon on corresponding row

3. Edit the Privilege

  1. Set preferences for each Privilege to indicate whether or not your installation has this Privilege to be granted to Groups or Users in your installation
  2. The option of "PU Can Assign" is hidden if the Privilege is set to Include ="no"; i.e., there is no ability for a Power User to grant this Privilege
