You can configure the following roles in DNS Edge based on the requirement of the user account:
  • System Admin—has full access rights to all components in DNS Edge.
  • Admin—has full access rights to most components in DNS Edge. Admins can't access or configure the SSO integration and service point update settings.
  • Policy Admin—has access rights to add, edit, or delete policies, domain lists, and IP lists. Policy Admins can't access or configure the user management, logging endpoints, SSO integration, Cisco Umbrella integration, and service point update settings.
  • Analyst—has access rights to view policies, domain lists, sites, site groups, namespaces, and system lists. Analysts can't view the user management, logging endpoints, SSO integration, Cisco Umbrella integration, and service point update settings.
DNS Edge is configured with one primary administrator account, which is identified by an asterisk. You can't edit the user profile of the primary administrator.
Attention: The User Management screen does not display any users if SSO integration is enabled.
