Permissions and Their Effects

The elements that are shown on a WebUI screen reflect the permission levels of the user, and the device, site, and group assignments set for them by the BigFix administrator.

For example, an operator responsible for patching Windows machines might not see Linux patches in their patch list or Linux machines in their device list. An operator who deploys software but does no patching might not see the Patch content or Custom content options in the Content submenu. For more information about permissions and their influence on WebUI screens and data elements, see the BigFix WebUI Administrators Guide.
