Junos Space Administrators Overview

Junos Space administrators serve different functional roles. A CLI administrator installs and configures Junos Space Appliances. A maintenance-mode administrator performs system-level tasks, such as troubleshooting and database restore operations. After Junos Space Appliances are installed and configured, users created from the Junos Space user interface perform the roles of accessing workspaces and managing applications, users, devices, services, customers, and so forth. Typically, an administrator performs most of the tasks from the Administration workspace. This entire workspace is available only if you are working in the global domain. You can identify the domain that you are currently in from the banner on the Junos Space Network Management Platform user interface. In subdomains, only the tags task is available under the Administration workspace.

Table 1 describes Junos Space administrators and Junos Space user UI users and the tasks that they perform.
