Custom User Privileges
An administrator user has access to specific features in the Administrator tool based on his or her user profile. If your site has been configured to support it, you can further define a user's access to administrative features by customizing their user privileges. As you do so, keep in mind the following:
- If you clear a privilege check box (to remove the privilege for the user), all subordinate privileges are no longer available to the user. For example, if you clear the "Users & Groups" check box, the user will not be able to access any of the user, group, and asset assignment features.
- If a privilege is removed for a user, the user cannot access the related feature in the main Administrator UI.
- By default, only super administrators have the privilege to delete users and groups. To grant this privilege to users with other administrator or manager profiles, you must customize the user's privileges as described in this section and make sure to select the check box for the privilege.
- You cannot customize user privileges for users with the Super Administrator profile.
- You must have the privilege yourself in order to grant that same privilege to other users.
- Users with a Manager profile cannot set custom user privileges for other users.
- Users with custom privileges are represented by icons that include a wrench, for example, for custom administrators.
