Users and permissions


Sign In

SecObserve supports two types of users:

  • Internally managed users: You need a username and password given by a SecObserve administrator and use the SIGN IN WITH USER button.
  • Users managed in Azure AD: The button SIGN IN WITH MICROSOFT will redirect you to login page of Microsoft.

Users have specified permissions depending on their type and role in a product.

User types

The user type can be set by flags in the user administration:

  • Superusers are the administrators of the system.
  • External users do not belong to the organization, e.g. customers or partners.
  • Internal users are all users who are not superusers or external users.

There are some general permissions based on the user's type:

Roles and permissions

Product Members

While superusers have permission to view and edit all data, internal and external users must be a product member with a specific role to access the product and its data. Product members of a product group have access to all products of that group with their respective role.
