Secure Mobile Access 12.4 Administration Guide

Defining Administrator Roles

Role-based administration enables the primary administrator to grant limited administrative control to secondary AMC administrators.

For defining administrator roles, the features in AMC are grouped into four categories. For each category, you must specify the permissions you want to grant a role. The four categories of administrator permissions in AMC are described in the below table. The permission level for each category can be set as shown in the Permission levels table.

Administrator permissions

Security administrationControls administrator access to pages for access control rules, resources, users and groups, WorkPlace, OnDemand, and End Point Control.
System configurationControls administrator access to pages for network settings, general appliance settings, SSL settings, access and network services, authentication servers, and realms.
System maintenanceControls administrator permission to shut down or restart the appliance, update or roll back the system software, and import or export configuration data.
System monitoringView access permits the administrator to view system logs and graphs, view active users, and run troubleshooting tools (such as starting, stopping, downloading, and deleting network traces). Modify provides additional permissions to terminate user sessions and modify log settings.
