Granular Node Management Rights.

There needs to be a simple way to assign users specific node management rights. For example, i have a group of users that i only want to be able to unmanage nodes, nothing more. There may be sophisticated ways of achieving this but it would be nice to have it built into the "Manage Accounts" section.

Thanks for considering this.

  • Just adding my 2p's worth, but being able to allow users to put nodes into an unmanaged state is essential for us.


    We use NCM to monitor our customers' networks, and some of them are very obsessive about maintaining accurate uptime statistics.
    If they need to take down a device, they insist on the ability to set it to unmanaged beforehand which is a reasonable request.

    I don't want to give them full node management rights as then they can add and remove devices at will, and could cause all kinds of problems doing so as they don't know how our alerting rules are configured. We also have a contractual limit on the number of devices we will monitor for them, and we don't want them to be able to bypass this without our knowledge.


    At the moment the only way we can do this is for them to log a call with our servicedesk which is far slower than allowing them self service on the maintenance mode option.
