User Management


The User Management option lets you manage different users with varying access privileges. You can assign different users to different device groups and IP groups, and allow them to manage the assigned groups exclusively. You can choose from three types of users in NetFlow Analyzer - Administrator, Operator, and Guest. You can create any number of users of each type, and assign them to any number of device groups and IP groups.


The administrative privileges for each user are described below:
