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

Administrator members in these roles have full access to the corresponding functionality. 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 Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and the WMI-based inventory tasks, including the Computer Explorer, Update Management, and Update Management Wizard tasks.

EminentWare Report

This role grants access to 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 similar to granting a subset of the functionality available to the WSUS Administrators  group on the WSUS server.
