Managing Roles

A role is a specific set of tasks that can be assigned to users in Junos Space Network Management Platform. Junos Space Platform provides predefined roles, as well as the provision to create user-defined roles, that can both be assigned to users. A Super Administrator or User Administrator can view all predefined and user-defined roles on the Role Based Access Control > Roles inventory page and create new user-defined roles if required.

Viewing User Role Details

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

Roles are listed in the table in ascending alphabetical order. The columns indicate the role title, type (that is, predefined or custom), 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 titles 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 that appears displays the workspace and workspace tasks assigned to that role.

  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.

Managing Predefined and User-Defined Roles

You can manage predefined and user-defined roles by selecting a task from the Actions menu or the shortcut menu that is displayed when you right-click a role, or by clicking the icons at the top of the Roles page. You can perform the Modify Role and Delete Roles actions only on user-defined roles. You cannot manipulate read-only predefined roles. To perform an action, you must first select the role.
