Administrators (role)

Administrator is the common system administrator role for the AgilePoint NX Portal. Any registered AgilePoint NX user can be assigned the Administrators role. There is no limit to the number of users who can be assigned the Administrators role. The Administrators role is subordinate to the Tenant Administrator.

Note: The Administrators role is different from the AgilePoint NX System Administrator. The AgilePoint NX System Administrator is one person, independent of any accounts or permissions. Administrators is a security role that can be assigned to any NX Portal user.

Good to Know

  • These administrator types have similar names, and they are easy to confuse:
    • The AgilePoint NX System Administrator is a person who is responsible for several administrator accounts and roles. In most cases, there is one primary AgilePoint NX System Administrator, but this is not a technical limitation.
    • A tenant administrator is a person who is resonsible for one AgilePoint Server tenant. In multi-tenant environments, each tenant can have its own administrator, but this is not a technical limitation.
    • The AgilePoint System Account is a set of credentials for managing AgilePoint Server. There can be only one AgilePoint System Account. In most cases, one human user is assigned these credentials.
    • The AgilePoint Service Account is a set of credentials AgilePoint Server uses to connect with other systems. There can be only one AgilePoint Service Account. Only the AgilePoint Server software uses these credentials, and they are not assigned to a human user. However, the AgilePoint NX System Administrator is usually responsible for maintaining these credentials.
    • The Tenant Administrator is a master administrator setting for the NX Portal. There can be only one Tenant Administrator.

      The Tenant Administrator is assigned on the Tenant Settings.

    • The Administrator is a security role on the NX Portal. Any number of users can be assigned the Administrator role.
