The Users section of the IDERA Dashboard Administration view allows users to grant access to other team members or groups, and manage their roles. For more information about user roles, see Understanding user roles. Users with administrative privileges are divided into two groups:

  • Dashboard administrators - capability to manage access over Dashboard functions as well as individual product functions.
  • Product administrators - capability to grant access to individual products for which they have administrative rights.

To add new users, edit their details (name, subscription, or email address), or remove them, select Manage Users in the Administration view, and the Manage Users window displays:
