Administrator profile mappings

Administrator profile mappings allow you to apply an administrator profile to an administrator when the user is added to an administrator group. An administrator profile mapping consists of an administrator profile that is linked to an administrator group.

Administrator profiles can be assigned to administrators based on the users' group membership. Administrator profile Mappings Policies are ranked in priority starting with number 1. When an administrator is added to an administrator group the group name is compared to the group in each administrator 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.

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

There may be more than one administrator group that is match for this administrator, however, the first match found is the one that is used.

Administrator profile assignments are not permanent. The administrator is reevaluated each time that user is added to or deleted from an administrator group.
