Assign Group Permissions

Permissions

The following permissions may be assigned to user groups in BeyondInsight for each feature.

Permission

Description

No Access

Users cannot access the selected feature. In most cases, the feature is not visible to the users.

Read Only

Users can view selected areas, but cannot change information.

Full Control

Users can view and change information for the selected feature.

Permissions for a BeyondInsight user must be assigned cumulatively and at the group level. You must assign permissions on features and Smart Groups after creating a new group in order for users in that group to be able to access features in the product. For example, if you want a BeyondInsight administrator to manage discovery scans only, then you must assign full control for the following features:

  • Management Console Access
  • Asset Management
  • Reports Management
  • Scan – Job Management
  • Scan Management

In addition to the group permissions noted, for the group to be provisioned, there must be at least one enabled Smart Group on the group. This sets the scope for the features.
