Deployment User


  • Testers

    I remember in the lead up to the 1.1.0 release their was discussion of a more granular user rights setup and was wondering if this was any closer to becoming a reality. My main concern is almost every interface page has a delete all button now and it has me on edge just waiting for one of my lower level users to send me an email titled “Sorry I Deleted all the clients!” or something similar. Really the most common restriction I can think off would be a user limited to registering hosts, adding snapins, and deploying images. This would keep the more inept users out of uploading and deleting anything. Even mobile only access would work if they could add snapins to a host.



  • Use Webin ([url=“http://www.webmin.com”]www.webmin.com[/url], free of charge) and you can easily set up both cron jobs and automatic database backups, and a lot more as well. The best server admin software there is!

    Would you consider posting your cron job to the how to forum or perhaps the wiki?



  • I have the same concern, with someone or even myself deleting things accidentally. One thing I put in place is a cron job that backs up the entire database every night. I have a folder full of .sql files able to be restored if ever needed. User permissions would be wonderful, but an administrator can accidentally be just as dangerous as anyone else ;)

    A tip is to export the hosts. If a user delete hosts by accident you can easily import them again. I have not tested this myself but is should work, I hope :-)
