About user and group privileges and presets

A privilege is a permission to perform a specific task in NetVault Backup.

To accomplish any task in NetVault Backup, MSP administrator must assign appropriate privileges to tenant administrator group and tenant user group. If the user group does not have the privileges, the request is denied. In NetVault Backup, the Auditor Daemon (nvavp) authorizes the user requests based on the privileges granted to the user or user groups. For information about the types of user and user group privileges in NetVault Backup, see User privileges.

A Preset is a set of user privileges. Presets facilitate the task of assigning user privileges. Instead of assigning the individual privileges to each user account, the administrator can assign a Preset. When a Preset is assigned to a user, the user gets all the permissions included in that set.

NetVault Backup includes several predefined Presets, which contain all the necessary privileges for specific user roles and user groups. The predefined Presets includes the following: MSP administrator, tenant administrator, and tenant user. For more information about the privileges included in these sets, see Predefined Presets.

The MSP administrator can also create user-defined presets for any additional user roles that are required in the backup environment. For more information, see Using Presets.
