Roles And Permissions

Please see Cloud One User Management if you’re accessing Conformity through the Cloud One console. The first four roles in this document is relevant only to Conformity standalone customers.

Roles

Trend Micro Cloud One™ – Conformity supports five user roles:

An Administrator user can assign roles to other users.

Administrator

The Administrator role has access to all of the Conformity features including addition of new users and managing subscriptions. This role is at a system level rather than at an account level, implying that an Administrator role can see all accounts within an organization and has complete access to all API endpoints.

By default, the user who registered your organization on the Conformity platform is assigned the Administrator role. However, this can be changed once more users with Administrator privileges are added to the system.

Once a user signs in to Conformity via ADFS, they are given a role in Conformity based on their ADFS group membership. Permissions and privileges of the ADFS-granted Administrator role are the same as the Cloud Conformity local Administrator role.

Power User

Power Users have full privileges for all the existing accounts as well as for the accounts that will be added in the future. Power users do not have access to Organisation level settings.

This role is not currently available to Trend Micro Cloud One™users.

Read Only

Users with Read only role have read only access to all the existing accounts as well as for the accounts that will be added in the future.

Custom Users

Custom users are managed by the Administrator. These users can be given three types of custom access for different accounts within Conformity:

  • Full Access - Provides users complete access to an account. Users can modify settings related to the account for which such access has been granted. However, Organisation level settings are not accessible.
  • Read Only - Users can view account details but do not have permission to modify any settings related to the account for which such access has been granted.
  • No Access - Restricts access to the user for the specified accounts. A user can be assigned the ‘No Access’ role to specific accounts but given ‘Read Only’ or ‘Full Access’ roles to other accounts in the organisation. Such an user will be able to see only those accounts they have access to on the dashboard.

This role is not currently available to Trend Micro Cloud One™users.

Custom Role

This role is only currently not available to Conformity Standalone customers.

Conformity Custom Role is managed by the Conformity Administrator and can be mapped with a Cloud One role in the Trend Micro Cloud One User management section. This role can be given three types of access.
