Manage Users

Roles (types of users)

There are four types of users in Cisco Panoptica. Each user is defined as one of these types.

  • Administrator- full access to create, delete, view, and change any object (such as a cluster, a policy, or other users) in Panoptica
  • Service User- used by third-party applications (such as the Panoptica Controller) for programmatic access; has permissions similar to the Admin
  • Account Auditor - can view all information for objects on Panoptica, but cannot add, delete, or make any changes.
  • CI/CD Scanner - this is a service account, for APIs accessing Panoptica functionality for CI/CD scanning.
