VMmanager 6: Administrator guide

User permissions

ISPSystem

There are different user roles in VMmanager with different access permissions to the platform functions:

  • administrator — this user is created automatically during the installation process. He can use all functions; 
  • advanced user — this user is created by a VMmanager administrator and can use extended functions for managing virtual machines and IP addresses;
  • user — this user is created by a VMmanager administrator and can use only basic functions for managing VM;
  • administrator with "read-only" access (admin.readonly) — this user is created by a VMmanager administrator. All functions are available in read-only mode. For more information, see the article Creating the admin.readonly user.
