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:
|Users||Modify||Modify (except Super Admin)||Read|
|MFA Enable / Disable||Modify||Modify (except Super Admin)||Read|
|Reset MFA||Modify||Modify (except Super Admin)||Read|
|Account > Application Tags||Modify||Modify||Read|
|Account > Email Domains||Modify||Read||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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
