Scoped Roles are user-defined roles that grant the permissions of one of the standard roles but only for one or more specified server groups or hosts. This topic shows how to create scoped roles.

Only users in the SuperUser or Administrator roles can perform this configuration.

Scoped Role configuration in the management console can be found by following these steps:
  1. Login to the Management Console
  2. Click on the Administration tab
  3. Expand the Access Control menu and select Role Assignment.
  4. Select ROLES tab, and then the Scoped Roles tab within it.
The Scoped Roles section of the Management Console consists of two main areas, a table containing a list of the currently configured scoped roles, and the Selection panel which displays the details of the role currently selected in the table.
The following procedures show how to perform configuration tasks for Scoped Roles.
