Adding Roles

Users (or groups) can be granted various roles on any managed endpoint, with each role granting the user (or group) different privileges with respect to that endpoint.

Role types

The following roles are supported on managed endpoints.

Administrator

  • Has full control over the endpoint definition of the endpoint.
  • Can delete endpoint definition
  • Can see endpoint definition even if set to private
  • Can manage roles for endpoint
  • An administrator for an S3 endpoint or a share also has all of the abilities of an Access Manager
  • Can be granted by other administrators. The creator of the endpoint is granted Administrator role by default
  • Has Access Manager and Activity Manager capabilities inherited

  • Can see endpoint definition even if set to private
  • Can be granted by any user who has Administrator role on the endpoint

Access Manager

  • Can manage permissions on any endpoints that supports sharing (S3 or shared endpoints)
  • Has read/write access to folders and files on the endpoint
  • If the endpoint is set to private (in the case of S3 endpoint), cannot see the endpoint.
