 +===== User Permissions =====
 +
 +There are several permission systems that restrict what an user can see or manage.
 +
 +==== ACLs ====
 +
 +The ACL system controls which elements an user can see or manage depending on the group they belong to.
 +
 +For example:
 +
 +  * A user may have reading permissions on the alert templates of the Application group and those of Administration on the Server group.
 +  * You will be able to see and assign templates to both groups, but you only have the option to edit or delete those of the Server group.
 +
 +To find out more about the ACLs, click on this [[:en:documentation:04_using:11_managing_and_administration#permission_assignment|link.]]
 +
 +==== Tags ====
 +
 +One tag is a label that you may assign to a module.
 +
 +An user could have the ACLs of some specific group restricted by Tags. If so, only these ACLs will be applied to the modules that contain those Tags.
 +
 +For example:
 +
 +  * An user may have reading or administration permissions on the Server group restricted to the //Systems//  Tag.
 +  * It will only have these permissions on the modules, that even belonging to an agent of the Server group, will have the //System//  Tag assigned.
 +
 +To learn more about the tags, click on this [[:en:documentation:04_using:11_managing_and_administration#permission_system_extended_by_tags|link.]]
 +
 +==== Wizard Access Control ====
 +
 +Users have an access level assigned regarding the Metaconsole Wizard. This level may be //Basic//  or //Advanced//.
 +
 +Besides, alert templates and module components (local and network) will also have this access level.
 +
 +=== Visibility ===
 +
 +== Basic Access ==
 +
 +//Basic access//  users will only see in the Wizard the alerts corresponding to the alert templates with //Basic//  level and the modules created from //Basic//  level components.
 +
 +== Advanced Access ==
 +
 +//Advanced//  access level users will see in the Wizard the alerts and modules from both //Basic//  and //Advanced//  levels.
 +
 +=== Configuration ===
 +
 +Apart from visibility, the access level also affects module configuration and its alerts.
 +
 +The section **[[:en:documentation:06_metaconsole:06_operation|Operation (Monitoring Wizard)]]** explains in detail the differences between Basic and Advanced monitor configuration.
 +
 +===== Administration =====
 +
 +The //Advanced// section contains the Metaconsole administration options, between them:
 +
 +   * The data synchronization between the Metaconsole and the Instances
 +  * The data management of the Metaconsole
 +  * The licence management of the Metaconsole
 +  * The Metasetup where there are:
 +      * The Instances configuration
 +      * The Metaconsole configuration options
 +
 +In this chapter we are going to talk about the Metasetup and the licence management, in the next chapter we will describe in detail the synchronization and data management of the Metaconsole.
 +
 +==== Instance Configuration ====
 +
 +In the Metasetup section, besides all the options of the console configuration, there is a tab for the console Setup.
 +
 +In this tab, we will select the instances. All the configuration process is available at the manual section [[:en:documentation:06_metaconsole:03_installation#instances_configuration|Install and Configure]]
 +
 +{{  :wiki:metasetup_nodosnew.png  }}
 +
 +==== Metaconsole Configuration ====
 +
 +In the Metasetup section we find tabs with the Metaconsole configuration different options:
 +
 +=== General Configuration ===
 +
 +In this section we find general data of the Metaconsole, such as the language, the date/hour configuration or customization about some sections, among others.
 +
 +It is possible to customize if we want that the Netflow section would be enabled or disabled, the tree view classified by tags, the visual console and the possibility of web checks creation from the Wizard.
 +
 +{{  :wiki:metasetup_general_new1.png?direct&  }}{{  :wiki:metasetup_general_new2.png?direct&  }}
 +
 +The parameters that require explanation are:
 +
 +  * **Centralized Management**: This option allows us to centrally manage policies and events from Metaconsole, without being able to manage them from the nodes.
 +  * **Enable update manager**: This option allows us to activate both the "Offline update manager" and the "Online update manager", which allow us to update the Metaconsole in this configuration.
 +=== Password Policy ===
 +
 +It is possible to set a password policy with limitations in the password number of characters, expiration, temporary blocking of one user. To know more about the password policy go to the manual section [[:en:documentation:04_using:12_console_setup#password_policy|Password policy]]
