[KB6968] Required user permission sets for tasks in ESET Security Management Center (7.x), ESET PROTECT (8.x) and ESET PROTECT Cloud

Solution

Required user permissions

This article assumes that you have the appropriate access rights and permissions to perform the tasks below.

If you use the default Administrator user or are unable to perform the tasks below (the option is unavailable), create a second administrator user with all access rights.

To perform tasks in the ESET Security Management Center (ESMC) Web Console, ESET PROTECT Web Console or ESET PROTECT Cloud Web Console, a user must have the appropriate access rights assigned to their home group. Each user has an assigned permission set that defines the scope of their access level to various objects.

Below is a list of example tasks and the required permission set to successfully perform the task.
