User privileges

Hi all!

Currently, we have a Flexera Cloud deployment, the security departement is asking about limitation of admin privileges over the users that were created during the deployment. The security departement , don´t let us to asign by default local admin privileges to a these users. And i have this question.

For the clould deployment, is there an official documentation regarding the roles needed for beacon users?, we only have seen for onpremise.

 

Thanks in advantage

Re: User privileges

Hello @ssanchezp,

In the FNMS Web UI, if you navigate to Settings (top right) -> Accounts -> Roles tab -> Create a Role, you will be able to see a full listing of the granular permissions that can be applied to operator accounts in FNMS.

Once you have decided upon the permissions required, you can create a Role which will have these permissions.

Then, you can assign this newly-created Role to one or more of your FNMS operators. Further information available at the below links:

https://docs.flexera.com/fnms/EN/WebHelp/index.html#topics/Accounts-Roles.html

https://docs.flexera.com/fnms/EN/WebHelp/index.html#tasks/Accounts-Create_Role.html

https://docs.flexera.com/fnms/EN/WebHelp/index.html#topics/Accounts-unassigned_Accounts.html

Are you able to elaborate further on the sort of tasks that these users will be carrying out in the Web UI?

HTH,

Joseph

Re: User privileges

This is a requirement of the Inventory Beacon "Service" that is running.

The Beacon Service must run as either the Windows SYSTEM account, or the Beacon Service must run as a Windows Account that is a Local Windows Administrator, which would typically be a Service Account.

Without either of these requirements, the Inventory Beacon will not be able to function correctly.
