Example: Restricted User with ZenOperator Role

The ZenUser role from the previous section allows read-only access to devices. By adding the ZenOperator role to specific devices, device classes, or groups of devices, a user will be able to acknowledge and close events, move events to history, and add log messages to events.

To add the ZenOperator role to specific devices, device classes, or groups of devices:

  1. Select the user name whose role must be changed on certain devices.
  2. In the left-hand pane, click Administered Objects.
  3. Click the Action icon and choose the device, device class, or other device organizer to which you want to grant the ZenOperator role.
  4. Select the ZenOperator role from the drop-down menu for the newly selected device, device class, or device organizer.

The user now has the ZenUser role for all devices in this instance, with the exception of the devices selected above which function under the ZenOperator role.
