Admin profile mappings

Admin Profile Mappings allow you to apply an Admin Profile to an Administrative User when the user is added to an Administrator Group. An Admin Profile Mapping consists of a Administrative Profile that is linked to an Administrator Group.

Admin Profiles can be assigned to Administrative Users based on the users' group membership. Admin Profile Mappings Policies are ranked in priority starting with number 1. When an Administrative User is added to an Administrator Group the group name is compared to the group in each Admin Profile Mapping starting with the first mapping (Rank 1) in the list. If the group does not match in the first mapping, the next one is checked until a match is found.

Note

When groups are nested within a parent group, admin profiles must be mapped to the groups that contain the users, and not the parent group only.

Note

There may be more than one Administrator Group that is match for this Administrative User, however, the first match found is the one that is used.

Note

Admin Profile assignments are not permanent. The Administrative User is reevaluated each time that user is added to or deleted from an Administrator Group.
