Admin profiles

In FortiNAC, you can create an administrative user and give that user an Admin Profile that contains special permissions for the Guest/Contractor feature set. These privileges are designed to restrict this user to certain parts of the program. See Admin profiles and permissions.

For Guest Manager, this type of user is referred to as a Sponsor in documentation because that person sponsors incoming guests and contractors. Creating a Sponsor Admin Profile allows the user to manage guest, contractor, conference or Self-Registered Guest accounts. For more information on the types of accounts, see Visitor types.

Guest Manager supports multiple UPN formats (for example, @gcs.xyztech.com) so sponsors do not have to type their full user login name. As administrative users create guest or contractor accounts, their administrative login name within Guest Manager is added as a part of the guest or contractor record for reporting purposes.

Additional permissions can be given to Sponsors based on the parameters of their responsibilities. Create one or more Admin Profiles for these types of users. Sponsor Admin User Profiles determine whether the sponsor can manage Guest accounts, Kiosk Accounts or Self-Registered Guest accounts.
