Modifying an admin group

You can modify an admin group to change the permissions associated with the group. For local admin groups, you can also update the display name.

Before you begin


  1. Select Configuration > Access Control > Admin Groups.
  2. Select the group.
    If your system includes more than 20 items, you can specify how many rows are shown on each page at one time. You can then use your browser's find feature to search for a specific item in the currently displayed rows.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Optionally, for local groups, enter the group's name that will appear to users, for example, Maintenance Users.
    You cannot change the unique name, which is the internal group name.
  5. Optionally, change the group's Access Mode.
    • Read-write (default): Users can change settings and perform the operations allowed by their management permissions.
    • Read-only: Users can only view settings and features. They cannot make any changes or perform any operations in the Grid Manager or Grid Management API. Local read-only users can change their own passwords.
      Note: If a user belongs to multiple groups and any group is set to Read-only, the user will have read-only access to all selected settings and features.
  6. Optionally, add or remove group permissions.
    See information about admin group permissions.
  7. Select Save.
