Create Roles

This section describes the steps for creating roles and assigning user to those roles. Before creating roles, refer to About Role-Based Access. However, GigaVUE nodes have three built-in roles for specifying which users have access to a given port. These roles are:

■   Admin

This role provides access to all command modes, including Standard, Enable, and Configure. Admin users also have access to all commands and all ports. They are also members of all groups.

■   Default

This role also provides access to all command modes. Users with the Default role has no access to unassigned ports. New users are created with the Default role automatically. However, you can remove it if you do not want to allow a user access to unassigned ports

■   Monitor

This role provides view-only access to ports and configurations. Administrators create additional custom roles and assign them to users together with the Default role. For example, if you create a role named Security_Team and assign it to tool port 5/1/x2, users assigned the Security_Team role are able to access tool port 5/1/x2. Conversely, users without a role that gives them some access to tool port 5/1/x2 will not even be able to see it in GigaVUE-FM. Users can have multiple assigned roles, allowing administrators to fine-tune access to the Visibility Platform.

To create roles and assign users to those roles, do the following:

1.   Select Roles and Users in the Navigation pane, then select the Roles page.

2. Click New.
3. On the New Role page, do the following:
o   Enter a role in the Role Name field. For example, Security_Team.
o   (Optional) Enter a description of the role in the Descriptions field.
4. Click Save.
5. Add users to the role. Refer to Add Users.
