Controlling Access to Administrative Functions

Alloy Navigator Express offers a number of special Management and Administration permissions for the administrators. These permissions are divided in two groups:

  • Administrative Access: This permission allows role members to log in to the Settings and grants access to other administrative tools such as the Import tool, the Automation Server Manager, and others.

    IMPORTANT: You must always have a role with the Administrative Access permission. It is highly recommended to assign this role to administrators only.

  • Advanced Administrative Functions: These permissions control access to advanced administrative functions in Alloy Navigator Express:

    • Batch Update: Allows role members to perform identical changes in multiple records at once. For details, see Batch-updating fields in multiple records.

    • IMPORTANT: You must additionally grant the Modify permission on the objects that will be updated.Otherwise, the administrator will be unable to perform the actual Batch Update. For details, see Controlling Access to Objects.

    • Local Snippets Management: Allows role members to create, modify, and delete their personal snippets. For details, see Using snippets.

    • Shared Snippets Use: Allows role members to use shared snippets. Note that shared snippets are configured in the Settings App by an administrator. For details, see Managing shared snippets.

  • View Management: These permissions control access to shared and local views, as well as the ability to share personal views and export grid data.

    • Shared View Management: Allows role members to create, modify, and delete shared data views, regardless of their ownership

  • Network Inventory — these permissions control access to the Network Inventory component of Alloy Navigator Express:
    • Administration — grants full control to all Network Inventory functions and tools.

    • Audit Management — allows role members to manage their own discovery, audit, and recalculation tasks using Network Inventory.

    • View — grants access to Network Inventory and allows role members to browse and view audited computers and network devices.
