As a cloud administrator, you can:

  • Create a new role by importing rights from another role. You can import rights only from a single role. When you import rights from a role, the new role inherits all the rights of the imported role. However, you cannot import rights configured for the Druva Cloud Administrator and Cloud Administrator.

  • Create a custom role.

❗ Important

  • A Druva Cloud Administrator can be created only through the Druva Cloud Platform Console. Click Global nav panel to access the Global Navigation Panel > Home to launch the Druva Cloud Platform Console.

  • All other administrators can be created through the inSync Management Console.

  • Rights available to the pre-defined roles can be viewed and managed only through the inSync Management Console.

  • Only Druva Cloud Administrator and Cloud Administrator roles are available for the Business edition.

  • Legal admin must be assigned to a custom role that has a combination of Legal Hold Management rights > View Legal Hold, Data Governance > Access Federated Search plus any one or all of the following rights - User Management, Deployment Management, Profile Management, Backup and restore management, Data Governance, Alerts and Reports Management, CloudCache Management. Legal administrators get access to profile(s) assigned to them by the cloud administrator and can search and view details of all users mapped to those profile(s) in addition to legal hold users.
