Add an administrator

You can add administrator users to the management console to grant those users the ability to control and configure your
Cylance Endpoint Security
environment. Existing and newly added administrator accounts are displayed on the User page (Assets > Users) in the management console. You can add the Administrator column to display an Administrator account icon icon beside each administrator account. The screens that an administrator user can view in the management console, and the features that the user is able to configure and change, depend on the role that you assign to that user. For more information on roles and permissions, see Permissions for administrator roles.
