    Understanding Connectivity Services Director User Administration

    Connectivity Services Director uses the user administration features of the Junos Space platform on which it runs. Using these features, you can add, delete, and edit user accounts and roles and changing user passwords. Refer to the Junos Space Network Application Platform User Guide for more information about user administration.

    When Connectivity Services Director is installed, some additional user administration options are available in Junos Space, which are specific to Connectivity Services Director:

    In addition to the Super Administrator role, the following predefined roles are available to Connectivity Services Director users:

    • The Device Manager role allows an administrator to discover devices.

    • The Service Manager role allows an administrator to perform device pre-staging actions including discovering and assigning device roles.

    • The Service Designer roles allows an administrator to create and publish a service definition.

    • The Service Activator (less privileged) role allows an administrator to perform provisioning tasks including creating and managing customers, service orders, and services.

    You can also create custom roles to grant users different access rights to the Connectivity Services Director modes. Connectivity Services Director modes—Deploy, Monitor, Fault, and Build—are available to assign to custom user roles in the list of application workspaces and associated tasks.

    Note: The tasks listed under the Connectivity Services Director modes are disabled. Access is controlled at the mode level, so if you grant a role access to a mode, the role has access to all tasks in that mode, regardless of which tasks you select.

    Note: For the Service Manager, Service Designer, and Service Activator user roles in Services Activation Director, the roles are migrated with additional access privileges to enable access to the different lifecyle modes of Connectivity Services Director after upgrading to Connectivity Services Director, Release 2.0.

    If you try to log in to Connectivity Services Director by using an account that does not have access rights to any Connectivity Services Director modes, you are redirected to Junos Space instead.

    Note: Access to Connectivity Services Director system preferences is controlled by user access rights. For more information, see Setting Up User and System Preferences.
