What's the difference between Master Administrator, Administrator and Viewer account in Omada Controller?
Apply to: Omada SDN Controller
When you are ready to add new administrators to your Omada Controller, there will be three types of account roles you choose to assign. Master Administrator, Administrator, and Viewer. The level of rights and access will be determined by the type of account role assigned to the user.
*With V5.9 and up of the Omada Controller supports customized user role settings. These 3 roles remain the default options.
When you add a new user to an Administrator or Viewer role, you could specify which sites you want them to have permission to access. These users cannot see sites beyond their assigned authorization. Their management will be limited to their access and assigned role. Master Administrator users have full access and can assign lesser roles and access.
1) Master Administrator
This role is assigned to the user who sets up the Controller for the first time. The account’s login will be tagged as a Master Administrator account and will have full access to Controller and all sites and systems it manages.
