When logging on to the administrative console, you can have two levels of authentication: superadministrators and subadministrators.
The system provides a mechanism for defining realms of control over clients and filters called subadministrator support
. For example, if your company has several business units that each have an IT person responsible for them, you may want to set up those IT people as subadministrators so that they can perform operations on the clients in their business unit. As the global or superadministrator, you would be able to see all the clients, but each subadministrator would only be able to see the clients assigned to them.
In general, only superadministrators have unrestricted access to administrative console functions. This user ID must be defined in the superadministrator group to manage clients. Any administrator not specified in this group can only work with items selected by a filter.
