User Roles Comparison (Vulnerability Management)

The following table provides a comparison of privileges granted to user roles for vulnerability management.

solid bullet means privilege is granted to the user role = privilege is granted to the user role

solid bullet means privilege is granted to the user role* = privilege may be granted to the user role, depending on when subscription was created

o = privilege may be assigned by a Manager

X = privilege may be assigned by a Manager ONLY when subscription is configured to allow it

Manager privileges apply to all user configurations (such as asset groups, option profiles, schedules, and saved results), regardless of who created them. Unit Manager privileges apply to user configurations created within their respective business units. Scanner and Reader privileges apply to personal configurations only. Remediation User has pre-defined and limited privileges. User Administrator has privileges to create and edit users, except other User Administrators. The KnowledgeBase Only role is only available when enabled for your subscription. Only a Manager can assign this role. Learn more about user roles and permissions
