Detailed description

Admins (highest permission)

Full administrator rights. Can access Discovery Manager to add/remove/change what’s to be inventoried by vScope. An admin can also access the setting page and add/remove users locally or through AD-integration.


This permission group can contribute to vScope by adding tags and notations to resources. They can also manage Tracker cases. However, they cannot manage users, settings or Discovery manager.


Users can access all data, tracker cases and build tables on their own. They are not allowed to manage vScope settings or the Discovery manager.

Viewers (lowest permission)
A viewer can only read the information provided for them by the other user groups. For example different tables shared with them directly or provided for this specific viewer group. They have a very limited access to vScope and cannot build, access or browse information beyond what has been shared with them.
