This topic contains the following information:


Account Admin Pane Edit ACLs Dialog

New Account/Edit Account Dialog See Also


The Account Admin application allows administrators to manage account contact users and Nimsoft Access Control Lists (ACLs). Administrators are users with the Account Administration permission in the ACL.

Administrators can add, modify, or delete accounts and account contacts (users) and set passwords for account contacts. They can also add, modify, or delete ACLs and set the permissions for the ACLs.

Changes made in the Account Admin application are reflected in the Infrastructure Manager, as both interfaces write to the same database.

If you do not have the Account Administration permission set in the ACL, you will see a

"Permission Denied" message when you try to run the Account Admin application.
