Managing Roles


A role is a description of tasks a user can perform in Junos Space Network Management Platform to allow access to application workspaces. The Role Based Access Control > Roles inventory page allows Super Administrator or User Administrator to view all predefined and user-defined roles that exist for Junos Space applications. The administrator should understand all predefined roles and create any user-defined roles before creating users.

Viewing User Role Details

The Roles inventory page displays all predefined and user-defined roles in a tabular view.

Each role is represented by a row in the table. Roles are listed in the table in ascending alphabetical order by role title, type (that is, whether the role is a predefined role or a custom role), description, and tasks assigned. You can show or hide table columns and sort records in ascending or descending order.

You can search for roles by typing the first letters of the role title in the search box. Role title starting with the first letters you type are listed.

To view a user role detail summary:

  1. On the Junos Space Network Management Platform user interface, select Role Based Access Control > Roles.

    The Roles page appears.

  2. Double-click a role.

    The Role Detail Summary page appears.

    The page displays the workspace and workspace tasks.

  3. Click the expander button + adjacent to the workspaces to view subtasks.
  4. Click OK on the Role Detail Summary page to exit this page.

    You are returned to the Roles page.
