Teradata Viewpoint includes preconfigured roles that cannot be removed from Teradata Viewpoint. Change the following roles according to your needs:
- This role has all permissions and can be assigned to any account. It is recommended that this role be used only by the Teradata Viewpoint Administrator.
- This role is assigned to every Teradata Viewpoint user. It is recommended that this role be set with no permissions.
- This role has all permissions necessary to access enabled web services.
- This role has all permissions (excluding Bar Portlet and Bar Operations) and can be assigned to any account. It is recommended that this role be used only by the Teradata Viewpoint Administrator who must not have access to Bar Portlet and Bar Operations.
Teradata recommends that you copy Administrator and User to configure new roles with partial permissions that are appropriate to all users in that role. Each role you create controls access to specific systems, portlets, metrics, settings, and permissions in portlets.
