Security modes

The Policy Administrator supports two different modes, the administrator mode and the user mode. The user mode offers limited features in comparison to the administrator mode.

If no access restrictions have been defined, the Policy Administrator opens in administrator mode. Otherwise the Policy Administrator opens in user mode. If grants for the SilkMeterAdminAccess policy have been set by the system administrator, further switches to the administrator mode are available only to granted users.

The policy is automatically installed during the setup process and cannot be deleted from Policy Administrator.

In user mode the following features are not available:

  • Importing a new policy.
  • Deleting a server or policy.
  • Editing grants.
