The window for this tab is divided into 3 sections:
- A taskbar (top): displays the various possible operations that can be performed (Add an administrator, Delete, Copy privileges etc.).
- The list of users and user groups identified as admin (left).
- The table of administrator privileges (right).
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.
Once the administrator's task is complete, he can release this privilege.
Some operations listed in the section Possible operations can be performed by right-clicking on the table of administrators:
- Add an administrator,
- Delete (an administrator),
- Copy privileges,
- Paste privileges,
- Grant all privileges.
You will be able to create your table of administrators from your LDAP database as well as their respective privileges.
Adding an administrator
|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 the Administrators and Admin account tabs in the Administrators module.
|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 Logs: limited access in order to enable the Logs: full access privilege without having to enter an access code to view private data.|
|Administrator without access to private data||Such administrators can access all logs that do not contain private data. To enable the Logs: full access privilege, he must click on Logs: limited access and enter the access code given to him in order to access private data.|
Once you have imported your administrator, he will appear in the list “User-user group” to the left of the screen.
The following operations can be performed on this administrator:
|Delete||Select the administrator to be removed from the list and click on Delete.|

|Grant all privileges||Regardless of the privileges assigned to the selected administrator, by clicking on this button.|
Table of privileges
Your interface is in “simple view” by default. The table displays 5 columns, which represent 5 categories of privileges to which an administrator may or may not be affiliated: System, Network, Users, Firewall and Monitoring.
The icons in the table mean:
- : All privileges have been assigned.
- : All privileges have not been assigned.
- : Some of the privileges have been assigned.
By switching to “advanced view” using the icons or (depending on the length of your screen), the table will display the details of the privileges by category. To find out the exact privileges corresponding to each column, see the bubble that appears when the mouse passes over each column header.
If you are at the top of the System column, you will see the access privileges it includes, in this case, “Maintenance” and “Objects”.
Double-clicking on the represented icons changes the status of privileges (from “assigned” to “not assigned” for example).
Double-clicking on this icon will assign the privileges, and this icon will be displayed instead.
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 privileges that can be assigned in simple view are:

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 who has logged on as admin will obtain the admin privilege. This is the only privilege that lets the administrator add or remove administration privileges for other users.
