Heads up!

Profile administrators have restricted access associated with their profiles. They have the necessary permissions to manage users and devices, and backups and restores.

Profile administrators can access the Non-Compliant report only for the profiles that they are mapped to. However, they cannot view the compliance summary at the Sensitive Data Governance Dashboard, or configure a compliance policy.

Additionally, Profile administrators cannot place or view users on legal hold.

Before you begin 

  • Ensure that the workload for which you want to create the administrator is licensed. 
  • Ensure that discovery is completed for all the org-level apps (SharePoint,  Teams, Public folder, and Shared Drives). 


  1. On the Druva Cloud Platform Console, click on the data source for which you want to create a Profile administrator. 

  2. In the inSync Management Console menu bar, click Settings.png  Settings > Manage Administrators. The Administrators page appears.

  3. In the top-right corner, click New Administrator. The New Administrator window appears.

  4. On the Summary tab, provide the appropriate information for each field.

Field Action

  2. In the Workloads section, all the workloads you have licenses for are displayed. Click workload.png and select the workloads you want to assign to the Profile administrator.

In the case of SaaS Apps, you can create a Profile administrator even for the sub-app. For example, you can create a Profile administrator for the Exchange Online sub-app under Microsoft 365.
