Types of inSync administrators

Types of administrators

There are two types of administrators in inSync.

  • Server administrator: Server administrators performs core activities such as configuring, managing, and monitoring inSync. They can also create other server and profile administrators. A server administrator can perform all activities that a profile administrator can. See, Creating a Server Administrator.
  • Profile administrator: Profile administrators performs profile-specific activities such as modifying profiles, creating or deleting users with associated profiles, and restoring data for users with associated profile. A server administrator assigns the profiles that a profile administrator can manage. See, Creating a Profile Administrator.
