Description Akash Chandrashekar 2009-01-19 12:15:35 EST

You actually can create new Satellite administrators, you just need to go to :


and manage it on this page.

but I think we should modify the user details page to support adding/removing sat admin from individual users.

Hello, I told that in addition that the Satellite Tools tab is the place to go to do this. Is that correct?
Comment 3 Clifford Perry 2009-01-29 12:25:49 EST
Comment #2 - yes - under Satellite Tools. 

The granting of Satellite Admin is a Satellite Administrative task, which is why it is kept within one central location and not split out under the 'users' tab of the Satellite - which is mainly used by Org Admins to manage user roles within their Org. 

Comment 4 Akash Chandrashekar 2009-01-29 13:12:29 EST
Good enough for me as it makes sense as to HOW to get it done - which was my primary goal. 

Is there a way we can get two things accounted for: 

1) Documentation that clearly explains (and I think there is a bit of a reference, but perhaps geared to 5.0 satellite? ) as what the primary difference is between the roles, and what their capabilities are. 

2) The addition of a section that indicates how to add such a user trough Sat-tools as explained above by Clifford Perry.
