What are the Administrator’s responsibilities?

As an administrator, you are in charge of ensuring that the best practices are applied through your actions and those of your employees.

Depending on the degree of administration, you have powerful tools in your hands. You must use them following the main guidelines.

What Data or Apps are normally shared?

By default the data from a device is NOT SHARED. Only the device cluster’s owner can see the data (assuming they use their own authorization for the device cluster). In most cases, this will require a share rule for that recType to be created in order to allow other parties to view the data. The device cluster is managed by the MS admin.

However, Apps are shared at the organizational level by default. They do not require share rules to be created. They can’t be restricted in access, although, they can be filtered out of the default user view using favorites. Thus the accessibility of an entity is managed by any person who is accredited as an identity administrator.

Robots are visible to only the creator. There is not currently a mechanism to share robots.

It is possible to share views very simply so that they can be reused by another user, but simply their use will be shared, they will not be visible on the account of the one who receives the right to use them.

Types of Administrators

There are thus 3 types of administrator.

The identity administrator which is accessible to any user, but given to people who manage entities.

The MS administrator who is the ms_admin@** account has a more important feature management.

The Super Admin at Microshare is a member of Microshare and is therefore able to create ms_admin accounts and identities.
