Assign a Privilege Manager Administrator Role

Before an administrator can manage access rights using Privilege Manager, they'll need to be added as a user in Recast Management Server and assigned a Recast role.

Add Active Directory User or User Group

To add an AD user or user group:

1. In your Recast Management Server, navigate to Administration > Permissions.

2. In the main window, click Add User or Add Group.

3. In the window that opens, search for your AD name or AD user group and click the Add button.

NOTE: You can include a wildcard (*) to facilitate your search.

Wildcard examples:
  • John Connor returns strings that match exactly
  • John C*  returns strings beginning with 'John C', such as 'John Connor', 'John Connors', and 'John Cranston'
  • *Connor returns strings ending with 'Connor', such as 'John Connor' and 'Carol O'Connor'
  • *Support* returns strings that include 'Support' plus whatever is on the left and right, such as 'Customer Support Team' and 'Enterprise Support Group'

Assign User a Role

A user must be assigned at least one role.

To assign a user an administrator's role:

1. On the Permissions page, click the Edit icon to the right of the user.

2. Under Role Assignments, select Administrators.

3. To limit the user's permissions to a set of devices, enable Limit this user to specific objects and select a Service Connection.

4. If desired, set a specific Refresh Interval for repopulating scopes. A longer interval uses fewer resources but also detects new users and devices less frequently.

5. Click Save.
