Manage Connector Access for Users

You can create users and then assign a role to it to grant access as per the role you define.  We support multiple user roles.

- Manager User: The most privileged users are Managers as they have full privileges and access to all resources in the subscription. Only Manager users can create users and assign roles.

- Users: There are two types of users that a Manager user can create. Depending on the permissions you assign to the role, you could categorize the users with all privileges or read only privileges.

All privilege : User will have all the privileges in CloudView except creating and managing other users.

Reader privileges: User with Reader role can only view the data displayed in CloudView module.
