The Cortado server offers you the option to deploy additional administrators with dif­fering rights. As well as the CortadoService account, which has all rights, you can cre­ate other admin accounts that can only make changes in certain areas (e.g. in user management, or in the apps). In addition, an admin account can be created that has reading rights only.

Available admin roles

In addition to the Cortado Server admin account (i.e. the CortadoService account you used for the installation), you can set up the following admin roles:

  • Read-Only-Admin
  • Support-Admin
  • Application-Admin
  • MDM-Admin
  • User-Admin
