You can now use the Admin Console to manage access to in-product features and capabilities. In order to manage users and the operations that they can perform in your product, the Admin Console allows you to assign permissions and roles to product profiles. For example, if your organization is using Adobe Analytics or Adobe Target, you can first create product profilesfor these products, assign permissions to these profiles based on your needs, and then add users to these product profiles. The added users will derive their permissions from the product profiles that they are added to.
In addition to providing users with permissions to perform specific tasks or access specific areas, you can also assign them product roles within product profiles. As an example, in the case of Adobe Target, you can assign users the roles of Observer, Editor, or Approver. These product roles are recognized and enforced by Adobe Target.
As a Product profile administrator, the capability to define permissions and roles within product profiles in the Admin Console gives you control over the way the end users interact with your product.
For details on managing products and profiles on the Admin Console, see Manage products and profiles.
The Admin Console groups together permission items into sections. Each section contains multiple permission items that can be included in or removed from a product profile.
The sections and permission items displayed in the Admin Console will vary for each product.
When you are adding permission items to a product profile, the Auto-include option allows you to add not only all the permission items that exist within a section today, but also all permission items that may be created within that section in the future. This implies that on selecting this checkbox, all the permission items that are currently available for the section will be added to the product profile. At a later time, if new permission items become available for this section, these items will be automatically included in this product profile. By selecting this option, you will not need to come back to edit this product profile to include the new permission items.
You can remove specific permission items that have been added to a product profile. You can also remove all the permission items in a permission section of a product profile.
You can create a new product profile using the permissions defined in an existing profile. This can be useful if you have a product profile with a complicated set of defined permissions.
