Unable to update DNS and DHCP without Admin rights on Orion

Overview

For an added Orion User with Custom role but no Orion Admin nor Node Management rights, the user is not able to add DNS record for an IP Address, which he has Power User permissions on for some subnets. The "Add DNS Record" button is disabled.

If Orion Admin rights is added to this account, user can then add a DNS record.

Environment

All IPAM versions 

Cause 

When using Custom role, DHCP and DNS permissions depend on Global account setting. If you are using Custom role permissions, the account must have Administrator rights to be able to update DHCP and DNS.

Resolution

Set the following permissions in order to modify DHCP and DNS:

  1. "Admin" rights within IPAM.
  2. "Power User" rights within IPAM.
  3. "Custom" rights within IPAM and "Administrator" rights within Orion.
