Administering users and permissions

Under AccountPermissions you manage users associated with a Netrounds account, and their privileges. You can invite new users, remove users, and change permissions for each user individually.

Note: To change permissions for a user, you first delete the user, then add the user again with the new set of permissions.

To invite a new user, enter the user's email address and the permissions the user should have, then click the Invite button. Netrounds will now send a welcome email to the address given.

The permission levels are Admin, Write, and Read. Over and above this, there is a Register only role which permits registration of Test Agents and nothing else.

The permission hierarchy is Admin > Write > Read. Anything granted at one permission level is also granted at higher permission levels.

User permissions required for Netrounds operations

All viewing of elements in the GUI can be done with Read permissions.

Read permissions are also sufficient for a few other operations, as detailed below.

For other operations that affect the state of Netrounds (edit, start/stop, delete, etc. in various contexts), Write permissions are required for the most part. However, some operations require Admin permissions. The following applies:
