Application Delivery Management

Configure roles

In Citrix Application Delivery Management (ADM), each role is bound to one or more access policies. You can define one-to-one, one-to-many, and many-to-many relationships between policies and roles. You can bind one role to multiple policies, and you can bind multiple roles to one policy.

For example, a role might be bound to two policies, with one policy defining access permissions for one feature and the other policy defining access permissions for another feature. One policy might grant permission to add Citrix ADC instances in Citrix ADM, and the other policy might grant permission to create and deploy StyleBooks and to configure Citrix ADC instances.

When multiple policies define edit and read-only permissions for a single feature, the edit permissions have priority.

Citrix ADM provides four predefined roles:

  • admin. Has access to all Citrix ADM features. (This role is bound to adminpolicy.)

  • readonly. Has read-only access. (This role is bound to readonlypolicy.)

  • appAdmin. Has administrative access to only the application features in Citrix ADM. (This role is bound to appAdminPolicy).

  • appReadonly.  Has read-only access to the application features. (This role is bound to appReadOnlyPolicy.)

Note The predefined roles cannot be edited.

You can also create your own (user-defined) roles.

To create roles and assign policies to them:

  1. In Citrix ADM, navigate to System > User Administration > Roles.

  2. Click Add.

  3. In the Role Name field, enter the name of the role, and provide the description in the Role Description field (optional.)

  4. In the Policies section, add or move one or more policies to the Configured list.
