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.

 In Networks sub menu, you can restrict the user’s network access. 

Toggle the available networks for the user in this section. The user gains the permission to 

access the networks whose check boxes are on.




Similarly,  when you restrict the user’s access to the custom fields, select Custom Fields and toggle the available custom fields. The user gain the permission 

to see the selected custom fields.




 Click on the OK button to save the user.


3.2.3   Quick Password Change

There is a shorthand method to change the password if you are currently logged in as a user (only your own password can be modified.)

Click on your own login username in the global menu. In the example below,

”admin” is the username, shown on the left of ”Logout”.



This feature is not available for users who logged in via RADIUS server authentication.

Enter the new password in both New Password and Confirm fields. Then click on Change Password button to save the new password.
