For administrators to install and configure the plugin in Config Tool, and for operators to monitor evacuations in Security Desk and the Evacuation Assistant portal, the correct user privileges must be granted to their user accounts.

Privileges added by Evacuation Assistant

The following table lists the privileges added to Security Center when the plugin is installed. If all of these privileges are missing from the privileges list in your user accounts, then the plugin is not installed on your local computer.

Although every company's organization is unique, we typically assign Config Tool and Security Desk privileges to users who install the plugin and set up the Security Desk workstations for operators. Operators are usually granted access to Security Desk privileges. Some privileges are required by all users.
