3.2     Users and Roles

Description on Users and Roles is described in Sec.2.4, p.34.  Briefly  speaking, each 

Role defines a set of available operations and a User  has exactly one such role.


The list of operations to be restricted,  such as reading  and writing the configuration (and more), are shown in Sec. 7.3.

In this section, we rather focus on the screen-by-screen instructions.


3.2.1   Creating a Role

Creating a Role is quite simple. First, go to Setting window → Roles. Enter the name of the Role into the text area and click on blob1477695572742.png  .

Select the permission of the role by toggling the checkbox. If the toggle is on, the permission to run the operation is granted to the user. Meaning of 

each checkbox is available at Sec. 7.3, p.232.
