In addition to assigning access rights at the server level, you can configure access to specific objects, for example, to a specific task. The application allows you to specify access rights to the following object types:

  • Administration groups
  • Tasks
  • Reports
  • Device selections
  • Event selections

To assign access rights to a specific object:

  1. Depending on the object type, in the main menu, go to the corresponding section:
    • Assets (Devices) → Hierarchy of groups
    • Assets (Devices) Tasks
    • Monitoring & reporting Reports
    • Assets (Devices) → Device selections
    • Monitoring & reporting Event selections
  2. Open the properties of the object to which you want to configure access rights.

    To open the properties window of an administration group or a task, click the object name. Properties of other objects can be opened by using the button on the toolbar.

  3. In the properties window, open the Access rights section.

    The user list opens. The listed users and security groups have access rights to the object. By default, if you use a hierarchy of administration groups or Servers, the list and access rights are inherited from the parent administration group or primary Server.

  4. To be able to modify the list, enable the Use custom permissions option.
  5. Configure access rights:
    • Use the Add and Delete buttons to modify the list.
    • Specify access rights for a user or security group. Do one of the following:
      • If you want to specify access rights manually, select the user or security group, click the Access rights button, and then specify the access rights.
      • If you want to assign a user role to the user or security group, select the user or security group, click the Roles button, and then select the role to assign.
  6. Click the Save button.

The access rights to the object are configured.
