Delegate management



With version 8 is it possible to delegate a particular user to manage a group of devices so that the user can pause, acknowledge the alerts etc? Looked through the KB for delegated management but could not find anything. Thanks.

As of PRTG 7 you can use User Groups to control access rights. Make the desired user member of a user group, and then, in the device tree, enable the respective rights in the object's Settings tab (Inherit Access Rights section). Access rights can be inherited to other objects lower in the hierarchy.
