Access Considerations for Delegated Administration
A delegated administrator has restricted access to user data.
- Customer applications. A delegated administrator can only see users that are associated with accounts with which the delegated administrator is associated. The My Account User Administration View is based on the Account (Delegated Admin) business component. This business component essentially restricts a delegated administrator's access to data that is associated with the accounts with which the delegated administrator is also associated.
- Partner applications. A delegated administrator can only see partner users whose positions are in the same partner organization to which the delegated administrator's position belongs.
A delegated administrator can add regular registered users or other delegated administrators. However, an administrator at your host company must add the first delegated administrator in:
- Each account for a Siebel customer application
- Each partner organization for a Siebel partner application
Creating a delegated administrator internally requires that you provide a user with a responsibility that includes the views needed for delegated administration. Your Siebel application provides seed responsibilities for delegated administrators of customer and partner applications.
For information about seed responsibilities, see Seed Data.
NOTE: Delegated user administration screens, navigation, and procedures vary somewhat among Siebel Business Applications. The remaining sections describe delegated administration that is representative of customer and partner applications.
