Users in Centreon Cloud

In Centreon Cloud, users/contacts can:

  • Log in to the Centreon web interface.
  • Receive notifications.

All users can access their own account to change their password (by clicking on the profile icon in the top right corner of the screen). All users can see all resources monitored by the platform. All users receive notifications.

User roles

There are 3 roles for users in Centreon Cloud, each with a specific set of rights.

  • User. Typically, Users are the people who will do the monitoring. They can:

    • use the Resources Status page : they can view the status of all resources, filter the view, acknowledge alerts, define/plan downtimes, force a check, add a comment.
    • use custom views, performance graphs and dashboards.
  • Editor. Editors can do the same things as Users, but they also can:

    • create hosts and services, meta-services, templates, categories...
    • disacknowledge an acknowledgement, submit a result...
    • view the list of pollers, export the configuration
    • install plugin packs.
  • Administrator. Administrators can do the same things as Editors, but they also can invite users using the CIAM.

Creating users

Users are managed in Centreon CIAM. Only CIAM Administrators can invite users into an organization (i.e. to a Centreon Cloud platform).
