Administrators are users that are created within the Unified Security Service system itself and are unrelated to any users belonging to an Active Directory connection.

Your Cloud USS account must have at least one Super User Administrator.

Creating new administrator users

Visit your USS Dashboard and click ProductsWeb SecuritySettingsAdministrators.

To add a new Administrator, click the button. Enter the name and email address of the new Administrator, choose the new Administrator's Role, and click .

New administrators will be sent an email verification link to activate their account.

Importing a list of new administrator users

If you have a lot of administrator users, that need to be created:

  1. Click .
  2. In the dialog that appears, enter a list of email addresses (one address per line).
  3. Choose a Role to assign to these new administrators.
New administrators, regardless of role, are required to go through the email verification process before they can sign in. A verification email will automatically be sent for all addresses in your list.

Managing administrator users

The Administrators screen shows all the Administrators that have been added to your USS account.

Verified

Once a user has confirmed their email address, this will be indicated here.

Suspended

A suspended user can perform no actions within the USS dashboard.

Redact

MFA

  • N/A - this is your own user and you cannot modify it from this location. Use the Account Password & MFA section instead.
  • Inactive - the user has not yet configured a second factor
  • Disable - the user has a second factor active. Click this button to disable it. You will be required to authenticate using your chosen second factor.

Roles

An Administrator must be assigned a Role. The Role allows you to extend RBAC (Role-based Access Control) over your Cloud USS account. Each role (with the exception of the Super User role) will restrict the Administrator to specific functions and abilities within the Cloud USS Dashboard.

For a full list of roles please see the Roles Knowledge Base article.
