User roles determine the privileges that the user has for the domain(s) of which they are a member. Users can be assigned one of four roles, with varying levels of permissions: Site Administrator, Domain Administrator, Operator, or Guest.
To view the privileges carried by each user role, go to Roles in the main menu and select a role.
Site administrators can create and manage domains and assign roles to users. Only Site Administrators can change DDM configuration.
The Site Administrator role applies across all domains managed by a DDM. Other roles are assigned to users (by a Site Administrator) on a per-domain basis. Users can have different roles for each domain.
Domain administrators can administer devices within a domain, including enrolling and upgrading devices, and routing audio within the domain.
Operators can use Dante Controller to configure audio routing on devices within a domain. They can also view domain configuration in DDM.
Guests can use Dante Controller to view audio routing on devices within a domain, but not change it. They can also view domain configuration in DDM.
The Site Administrator can specifically assign a user a particular role within a domain. The role can be Domain Administrator, User, Guest, or None. A user with a role of None for a domain cannot even view that domain in Dante Controller or DDM.
For example, a user with a default role of Domain Administrator becomes a Domain Administrator in all domains. The Site Administrator could then set that user’s role to Guest for one specific domain. If a new domain is created, the user would automatically have Domain Administrator permissions for the new domain.
Note: A Site Administrator may also assign the Site Administrator role to a user account in addition to the other roles. Domain-specific privileges are not applicable to user accounts with a default role of Site Administrator.
New users are created with a default role of None unless otherwise specified.
