Responsibilities of an Administrator

Enterprise administrators create the exchanges that are subsequently administered by the exchange administrators. Most enterprise administration takes place during initial start-up and configuration.

Enterprise administrators will manage, or have access to, a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) registry. You can set the platform to use an internal registry but, in most cases, you will want to make use of your existing user and group accounts in LDAP. The enterprise administrator creates the links to LDAP and configures the underlying user and group management.

Exchange administrators manage exchanges within the enterprise. They are responsible for the bulk of ongoing maintenance administration. After initial setup and enterprise-level configuration, the exchange administrator:

  • creates data planes (data agent and data proxy)

  • manages data planes

  • creates users and assigns user roles

  • creates groups and assigns group roles

System administrators deploy the data agent and data proxy.
