For administrators to configure incidents in Config Tool, and for operators to use the Incident Monitoring and Incident report tasks in Security Desk, the correct user privileges must be granted to their user accounts.

Configuring user privileges for Genetec Mission Controlâ„¢

Default privileges are assigned to some user groups, such as administrators, operators, and supervisors. Individual users in these user groups inherit their privileges from the parent user group, unless specified otherwise. The operator and supervisor privilege template typically grants access to Security Desk.

In the Config Tool User management task, you can configure or modify the user or user group privileges on the Privileges page of the user or user group.

To learn more about the privilege hierarchy, privilege inheritance, and assigning privileges, see the Security Center Administrator Guide and the Security Center Hardening Guide.

NOTE: For a list of all available Security Center privileges, see the Security Center privileges spreadsheet. You can sort and filter this list as needed.

Administrative privileges

Administrative privileges grant access to Mission Control incident management activities using Config Tool.

By default, administrators have all privileges. If you create a user account from one of the other privilege templates and you want this user to add and configure incidents, the user account requires the following incident management administrative privileges for Config Tool in Mission Control:
