EMS Administration Guide

Admin roles

You can use admin roles to define the permissions each administrator account has in FortiClient EMS. You can use a default admin role in FortiClient EMS or create a new admin role to assign to an administrator account. Each admin role can include permissions from the following categories: endpoint, policy, and settings.

The following describes the default admin roles in FortiClient EMS. You cannot edit or delete these admin roles:

The default admin account is a super administrator. You cannot assign another admin role to the admin account.
