Device Group Access (Users tab)Use this section in the "Users and Device Group Access" display's Users tab to manage the monitoring and surveillance access you want a user or user group to have at each device group.
These settings are accessed by selecting the right-click Device Group Access option for any device group in the Device Groups view, or by clicking Device Group Access in the "Users and Device Group Access" display's Users tab.
To manage the access settings, select a listed user or user group and click Modify Device Group Access to access the "Device Group Access" display. However, this button is inactive for the following entries:
- The Unassigned Users group
- The Remote Users group
This users group is listed only when at least one authentication server has been added using the Authentication Servers tab.
- The primary Data Center ExpertAdministrator user (apc, by default).
- Any user or user group that hasData Center ExpertAdministrator selected for its role.
You can change this role for any user or user group except the primary Data Center ExpertAdministrator user (apc, by default).
Membership in a user group can affect a user's monitoring and surveillance access at the device groups. The settings that provide the least-restrictive access, whether it is the user's or user group's Device Group Access settings, define the access a user has. For example, if a user with No Access for surveillance at a device group belongs to a user group with View and Tag Access for surveillance at that device group, that user has View and Tag Access.
|User or User Group Name||Lists the user groups, including default (Device Administrators, Device Viewers, Server Administrators, and Unassigned Users) and user-created groups. Users are listed under the user group to which they are assigned (local users not assigned to another group are listed under Unassigned Users; remote users are listed only under Remote Users).
This column is used in the Users and User Group Details section of the Users tab, as well.
|Device Group||Reports the Monitoring and Surveillance access a selected user or user group has at the device groups.
You can edit the access settings for a device group if Modify Device Group Access is enabled for the selected user or user group.
The All Devices group access settings provide a baseline for all other device groups. The other device groups will use at least the same access settings as All Devices, but any group can be set to use less-restrictive settings.
|Monitoring||Reports the monitoring access a selected user or user group has at the device groups.|
|Surveillance||Reports the surveillance access a selected user or user group has at the device groups.|
