This tab consists of a grid containing:
- A taskbar: it shows the various possible operations that can be applied to an administrator.
- The list of users and user groups identified as administrators and their privileges.
The Administrators tab can only be accessed by the user connected with the admin account.
Some other operations can also be performed by right-clicking in the grid of administrators.
|Adding an administrator||Adds a new administrator on the firewall. Several choices are offered depending on the privileges to assign to the new administrator. The procedure is explained in the section Adding an administrator.|
|Delete||Deletes the selected administrator.|
|Move up||Places the selected administrator above the previous administrator in the list.|
|Move down||Places the selected administrator below the following administrator in the list.|
|Copy privileges||Copies the privileges of the selected administrator.|
|Paste privileges||Pastes the copied privileges to the selected administrator.|
|Grant all privileges||Assigns all privileges to the selected administrator.|
|Switch to advanced/simple view||
Changes how privileges are displayed in the grid according to two views:
Details of the privileges are provided in the section Possible privileges.
Several options are available when you click on Add:
|Administrator without any privileges||
This type of administrator has all the basic privileges such as access to the Dashboard and to the following modules:
The module Vulnerability management can only be accessed with write privileges.
|Administrator with read-only access||This type of administrator has the same basic access privileges as the administrator “without privileges” with the following additional privileges: reading of SNMP logs, E-mail alerts, System events as well as reading privileges for Filtering and VPN.|
|Administrator with all privileges||
This type of administrator has access to all modules except those in which super-administrator access (admin account) is required.
There can only be one super-administrator with the following characteristics:
|Administrator for temporary accounts||This type of administrator can only manage temporary accounts defined on the firewall (creating, modifying and deleting).|
|Administrator with access to private data||This type of administrator can access all logs by clicking on Restricted access to logs in order to enable the Full access to logs (private data) privilege without having to enter an access code to view private data.|
|Administrator without access to private data||
For the purpose of compliance with the European GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), it is now possible to define an administrator with read and write privileges on the firewall but who cannot view private data stored in logs.
Nonetheless, the administrator in question can still request and obtain access privileges to such data by entering an authorization code given by his supervisor. This code is valid for a limited period defined at the moment of its creation. To enable Full access to logs (private data), the administrator must click on the link Restricted access to logs, then enter the code.
Once the administrator's task is complete, he can release this privilege.
Next, define the user or user group to add as an administrator.
|User - Group found in the LDAP directory||
Makes it possible to add as an administrator a user or user group found in the firewall's LDAP directory. Select from the drop-down list the user or user group in question.
|User - Group originating from another domain (directory)||
Makes it possible to add as an administrator a user or user group coming from another domain. For this option, enter the following information:
Once added, the administrator will appear in the grid in the User-user group column.
Privileges are displayed in the grid by two views:
- Simple view: default display containing several columns which represent the categories of privileges that an administrator may or may not have. Scroll over the title of a column to find out the exact privileges it holds.
Advanced view: shows all available privileges.
Use the Switch to advanced/simple view button to change the display.
The icons in the table mean:
- : All privileges have been assigned.
- : All privileges have not been assigned.
- : Some of the privileges have been assigned.
Double-clicking on the represented icons changes the status of privileges (from “assigned” to “not assigned” for example). Double-clicking on the icon withdraws the assigned privileges.
Any changes made to an administrator's permissions will only be applied the next time this administrator logs on. If you wish to apply a modification immediately, you will need to force the disconnection of the administrator in question (for example using the CLI command: monitor flush user).

The base privilege is assigned to all users systematically. With this privilege, the administrator can read the whole configuration except filtering, VPN, logs and content filtering.
The modify privilege is assigned to users who have write privileges.
The user logged in as admin will obtain the admin privilege. This is the only privilege that lets the administrator add or remove administration privileges for other users.
