Scope:

All Web Filters, firmware 6.x and above.

Answer:

If you want to create Role based Administrator on your web filter, with the different privileges on administrating your web filter, you have an option to create Delegated administrators and assign them appropriate roles.

Go to Advanced -> Delegated Admin page. There you can choose role for your Administrator. It can be:

  • Administrator - Full access to all tabs. Limit Access to do not apply.

  • Read Only - Access to all tabs in read-only mode, can view reports, and cannot schedule reports. Limit Access to do not apply.

  • Manage - Can view Status and Log page, can view and schedule reports, can create exceptions on the BLOCK/ACCEPT > Exceptions page. All other BLOCK/ACCEPT pages are read-only. The following pages are disabled: USERS/GROUPS, ADVANCED, BASIC > IP Configuration, BASIC > Administration. Limit Access to apply.

  • Monitor - Can view Status and Log pages, can view and schedule reports. The following pages are disabled: BLOCK/ACCEPT, USERS/GROUPS, ADVANCED, BASIC > IP Configuration, BASIC > Administration. Limit Access To applies

  • Support - Can view Status and Log pages, can view reports, cannot schedule reports, can create exceptions on the BLOCK/ACCEPT > Exceptions page. All other BLOCK/ACCEPT pages are read-only. The following pages are disabled: USERS/GROUPS, ADVANCED, BASIC > IP Configuration, BASIC > Administration. Limit Access do apply.

After that you will assign username and password for that Administrator, or you can use LDAP Authentication as an option to log into the web filter.

You have an option to set email alerts for the role you have specified when users violate Block, Warn and Monitor policies under the Block/Accept -> Content filter or Block/Accept Exception tab. To set this up you need to have Policy Alert enabled on Block/Accept -> Exception page.

Option “Limit Access to” allow you to limit permissions for the role that you are creating to only administrate specific users, groups etc.
