Role-based Access Control (RBAC) in Nerdio Manager

You can use Role-based Access Controls (RBAC) to allow users in your organization to sign in to Nerdio Manager and control which actions they can perform once signed in.

The following roles are available:

  • AVD Admin: A user with the AVD Admin role has complete access to all areas of Nerdio Manager. Only AVD Admins can manage users and roles.

  • Desktop Admin: A user with the Desktop Admin role has complete access to user sessions, the ability to view Host Pools, power on/off/restart session hosts, but does not have the ability to add/remove hosts or change any host pool settings. This role also allows for full access to Desktop Images and Scripted Actions.

  • Help Desk: A user with the Help Desk role has access to manage user sessions only.

  • Reviewer: A user with the Reviewer role has view-only access to all areas of Nerdio Manager. They cannot make edits and save changes.

  • End User: A user with the End User role can view and manage their own sessions (message, sign out, disconnect). Personal desktop users can restart, power off, and power on their personal desktops.
