Most operations that can be performed at the Global Console can be individually enabled or disabled in the user profiles. When used with the security levels, restricting console operations can fine tune the abilities of users and further protect the VMware Smart Assurance deployment.

For example, consider two users who have the Monitor security level that allows access to Global Console monitoring functionality, but not administrative functionality, for a Domain Manager. You can further restrict one of the viewers to see only the summary view and the IP Network map while restricting the other user to the notification log and the topology browser.
