CTERA Portal includes the following roles for global administrators:
Read/Write Administrator – The administrator has read/write permissions throughout the CTERA Portal.
Read Only Administrator – The administrator has read-only permissions throughout the CTERA Portal.
Support – The administrator has read/write access to devices, user accounts, folders, and folder groups, and read-only access to all other settings in the CTERA Portal.
You can customize these roles, adding or removing permissions.
To customize an administrator role:
In the global administration view, select Settings in the navigation pane.
The Control Panel page is displayed.
Select User Roles, under USERS in the Control Panel page.
The Roles window is displayed.
Either click a role or select a role's row and click Edit.
The Edit Role window is displayed.
Check the permissions you want to include in the role, and uncheck those that you don't want to include.
Super User – Give all permissions to administrators and allow administrators to use the CTERA Portal API to perform Single Sign-on on behalf of users.
Access End User Folders – Allow administrators to access and modify end user files and folders. If this option is not selected, and an administrator with this role attempts to access an end user's folder, the administrator will be prompted to enter the folder owner’s password.
Manage Cloud Folders – Allow administrators to remove, rename and change the owner of cloud folders. Without this permission, an administrator has only read-only access to the projects, backup folders and personal folder objects unless the administrator is the folder owner and the administrator or a user group the administrator belongs to has collaboration permissions for the folder.Note
A Read/Write Administrator with both Access End User Folders and Manage Cloud Folders roles can also share the end user cloud folders.

- Modify User Password – Allow administrators to modify the passwords associated with user accounts.

Allow Single Sign On to Devices – Allow administrators to remotely manage devices for which Remote Access with single sign on (SSO) is enabled, without entering the username and password for accessing the device.
