IPAM allows site administrators to securely grant varying privilege levels through user delegation.

To define user roles from the web console menu:

  1. Click Settings > Manage Accounts > Add New Account.
  2. Choose which account is applicable, and click Next.

    For detailed definitions of each role see IPAM User Delegation.

    As a site administrator, you can use role definitions to restrict user access, as necessary, to maintain security without limiting your ability to delegate required network management activities.

    For example: Defining access roles per subnet, group, or supernet as well as combinations of those containers for specific users.

    If you are defining a custom role see IPAM Custom Roles for more information.

  6. Select the appropriate role and click Submit.

Site Administrators can also configure custom roles in the Edit Subnet window. Select a subnet > edit > then select Account Roles. Check the Account and click Manage Accounts to configure.
