Task Groups

The Task Group Configuration page allows you to add, edit, and remove task groups. Task groups allow users to have different permission levels (read, write, execute, debug) at a per-component level. Task-based authorization uses the concept of components/tasks to define permission for commands for a given user.

Users are assigned to User Groups that are, in turn, associated with Task Groups. Each Task Group is then associated with one or more tasks/components. This feature is supported only for users who are authenticated locally via the web interface.

To access this page, click System > Users > Task Groups in the navigation menu.
