System Permissions

System permissions are global procedures that can be set for each user or user group, such as deploying agents, adding licenses or viewing or editing reports, server settings and default object properties.

To access system permissions:

  1. From the SMC, navigate to the Options section.

  2. Select the Server Settings page.

  3. Double-click the System Security icon. The System permissions page appears (as shown below).

 

 

 

To set system permissions:

  1. From the System Security page, select the available user or group from the Available Group/User Name window and click the Add button or simply double-click the desired user or group to add it to the Selected Group/User Name window.

  2. Highlight the user or group from the Selected Group/User Name window and set the proper permissions for that user/group in the Permissions window.

  3. To remove a particular user/group from the Selected Group/User Name window, select the user or group from that window and click the Remove button or simply double-click the desired user or group.

NOTE: If two or more sets of permissions conflict, the set of permissions with least privilege is followed.
