Permissions for mapped roles


The RBAC (role-based access control) capabilities enforced on the storage array include pre-defined user profiles with one or more roles mapped to them. Each role includes permissions for accessing tasks in System Manager.

User profiles and mapped roles are accessible from Settings  Access Management  Local User Roles in the user interface of either System Manager.

The roles provide user access to tasks, as follows:

  • Storage admin — Full read/write access to the storage objects (for example, volumes and disk pools), but no access to the security configuration.

  • Security admin — Access to the security configuration in Access Management, certificate management, audit log management, and the ability to turn the legacy management interface (SYMbol) on or off.

  • Support admin — Access to all hardware resources on the storage array, failure data, MEL events, and controller firmware upgrades. No access to storage objects or the security configuration.

  • Monitor — Read-only access to all storage objects, but no access to the security configuration.

If a user does not have permissions for a certain task, that task is either grayed out or does not display in the user interface.
