Understanding Roles in vFoglight

vFoglight controls access to dashboards and views by means of roles. A vFoglight administrator assigns users to groups and then assigns roles to those groups. When you try to access a dashboard or view, the roles of the groups to which you belong are matched against the relevant roles and the allowed roles that were set for that dashboard or view.

Relevant roles control which dashboards and views are listed in the navigation and action panels. Allowed roles control which dashboards and views a group can access, whether or not they are listed in the panels. If a view has no relevant roles marked, vFoglight assumes it is relevant to all roles. If a view has no allowed roles marked, vFoglight assumes that all roles are allowed to see it.

To illustrate how roles work, suppose you belong to a group that has been assigned the roles of Advanced Operator and Dashboard User. When you log in to vFoglight, the navigation panel lists only the dashboards for which those roles are relevant roles. In some dashboards, one or more views may not be available because your roles have not been set as allowed roles for them.

You can filter the dashboards that are listed in the navigation panel by clicking the filter icon to the right of Dashboards or Homes to display a list of relevant roles, de-selecting one or more roles, and clicking Apply .

The roles that are built in to vFoglight are designed to have the following permissions:
