Roles play an important part of what a User is allowed to do when accessing the Valtix Platform. A Role is considered a privilege that grants the User a set of Permissions when working within the platform.

There are three available Roles:

  • Super Admin (admin_super)
  • Read/Write Admin (admin_rw)
  • Read-Only Admin (admin_read-only)

There are two Permission definitions:

  • Modify - View, Create, Modify, Delete
  • Read - View

The Permissions for each Setting associated with each Role are outlined in the following table:

Setting Super Admin
Read/Write Admin
Read-Only Admin
Users Modify Modify (except Super Admin) Read
MFA Enable / Disable Modify Modify (except Super Admin) Read
Reset MFA Modify Modify (except Super Admin) Read
API Keys Modify Read Read
Roles Read Read Read

Account > Email Domains Modify Read Read

Alert Profiles
Services Modify Modify Read

Only one (1) user within a customer's Valtix Platform account can be assigned the Super Admin Role. This User is seen as the owner of the account and is synonymous with the owner of an AWS Account or a Linux Root Account. All other Users should be assigned a Read/Write Admin or Read-Only Admin Role.

The Super Admin Role is assigned by Valtix and is granted to the first User created when the customer's Valtix Platform account is instantiated. If a change to this assignment is required, please contact
