WebAdmin: Custom Administration Roles

Expand granularity of WebAdmin roles. Current access gives an "Office Manager" too much control across too many areas under each "manager" or "auditor" level term. We have the need to let one person Release Spam and add URLs to control office traffic

It would be nice if there was a list of available areas and operations with the ability for us to make a role composed of our selections.

        It would be very useful to be able to access the parts of the WebAdmin for these invividual roles (Mail Manager, VPNManager) directly rather than having to access the whole WebAdmin Interface.

        e.g. a URL that went directly to Mail Manager with the login page if required would be a great advantage

        It would be useful to add an access control role limited to site-to-site VPN management.

        Right, I read this as a request to be able to limit access overall to VPN users. Oliver is suggesting that it be possible to delegate Site-to-Site VPN management just as it now is possible to delegate Remote Access management.

        Ok, after asking on the forum we agreed that this is currently not possible, hence it stays a feature request.

        It is? The Sophos support team told me it's not and I should go post it as a feature request. Anyway I'll post that question on the forum, thanks Bob.

        Sean, you didn't say what version. In V8.2, you can add "Any" to 'Users/Groups allowed to bypass blocking', and then each bypass will be reported - that way they never have to wait on you.

        Also in V8, it is possible to give them access to reports and to view things while preventing them from making any changes.
