Use the following operational roles to grant access to the everyday functions in the Patch Manager console in either Administrators or Viewers capacity:

Members of these roles in the Administrators capacity have full access to the corresponding functionality. That is, they can view, create, modify, or delete information within the scope of that role. Members in the Viewers capacity have read-only access to the corresponding functionality.

Computer Configuration

This role grants access to information obtained from direct connections to managed computers. This includes any information gathered using WMI and the WMI-based inventory tasks, including the Computer Explorer, and most notably the Update Management and Update Management Wizard tasks.

EminentWare Report

This role grants access to the reports in the Administration and Reporting > Reporting node in the Patch Manager console.

WSUS Server

This role grants access to all functionality involving WSUS servers. This role is almost the equivalent of granting a subset of the functionality available to the WSUS Administrators group on the WSUS server.
