Modify User Profile Management Permissions

Restricted Administrator security roles can be customized by granting access to many administrative functions this role does not normally have access to.

  1. On the main toolbar, click Deployment Manager.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Administration, and then click User Profile Manager.
    The User Profile Manager window appears and lists the existing User Profiles.
  3. Click an existing user profile to select it, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Management Permissions tab.
  5. Expand the fields or use the search field to find the administrative function you want to grant access to.
  6. Select a level of access to grant.
    • View. The user profile can view the data and configurations but cannot make any changes.
    • Manage. The user profile can view and make changes to the data and configurations.

      Some permissions are dependent upon each other. For example, you need access to Manage AI Engines and Manage AI Engine Rules before you can access Manage AI Engine Rule Actions. If you grant access to AI Engine Rule Actions, in this example, the others are automatically checked, as shown below.
