View Administrator presents the combination of a role, an administrator user or group, and an access group as a permission. The role defines the actions that can be performed, the user or group indicates who can perform the action, and the access group contains the objects that are the target of the action.
Permissions appear differently in View Administrator depending on whether you select an administrator user or group, an access group, or a role.
Table 1 shows how permissions appear in View Administrator when you select an administrator user or group. The administrator user is called Admin 1 and it has two permissions.
|Administrators (Read only)||/|
The first permission shows that Admin 1 has the Inventory Administrators role on the access group called MarketingDesktops. The second permission shows that Admin 1 has the Administrators (Read only) role on the root access group.
Table 2 shows how the same permissions appear in View Administrator when you select the MarketingDesktops access group.
|view-domain.com\Admin1||Administrators (Read only)||Yes|
The first permission is the same as the first permission shown in Table 1. The second permission is inherited from the second permission shown in Table 1. Because access groups inherit permissions from the root access group, Admin1 has the Administrators (Read only) role on the MarketingDesktops access group. When a permission is inherited, Yes appears in the Inherited column.
