7.5 Credential Rights

The Credential Rights dialog box lets you control the operations that the selected administrator can perform to manage credentials.

7.5.1 Contexts

Specify the Credential folders (contexts) that you want the administrator’s Credential rights to apply to. To select a folder, click Add to display the Contexts dialog box, browse for and select the folder (or multiple folders), then click OK. The rights also apply to the folder’s subfolders.

The Privileges section lets you grant the selected administrator rights to create or modify credentials, groups, and folders listed in the Contexts section.

The following rights are available:
