Introducing Operators

When you install BigFix, you also set up specific personnel to act as Operators.

There are three classes of operator:

  • The Site Administrator is responsible for installing and maintaining the BigFix components, as well as managing the certificates and keys. Only the Administrator can create new users.
  • The Console Master Operators can assign management rights to other operators.
  • The Console Operators are the day-to-day managers of their own domains, but they cannot assign management rights.

Often these administrative roles overlap and one person might be assigned multiple duties.
