Accounts and Roles

NetQ accounts are assigned one of two roles: admin or user. Accounts with admin privileges can perform the same actions as user accounts. Additionally, admins can access a management dashboard in the UI by expanding the Menu on the NetQ dashboard, then selecting Management.

From this dashboard, admins can:

  • Create, edit, and delete NetQ accounts
  • Manage login policies, including SSO and LDAP authentication
  • Review account activity
  • Create, edit, and delete system events, channels, and notifications
  • Manage premises
  • Schedule network traces and validations
  • Manage switches' lifecycles

The following image displays the management dashboard. Accounts with user privileges cannot perform the functions described above and do not have access to the management dashboard.
