Per-user access rights report?



Is there a report we can run that will give us a list of groups/devices/sensors and privilege level on each that a given user or user group may have? We have customers and non-admin users who should only be able to see their own devices or sensors. However, without logging in as that user it is impossible to tell what objects that user has access to and what level of access they may have. For internal security auditing reasons we need to be able to produce a report that lists each object a user can see and what level of rights they have to that object. The only way we can see to do this now is by visiting each individual sensor and recording the rights. This is not a viable option on a system with more than 1600 sensors.

Dear Jim,

I'm afraid this is not possible yet, but we are thinking about this whole area for PRTG 9. Can't say anymore right now ;-)

Best Regards.

Ok, I'm under the impression that this feature did make it into v9. Is that true, and if so, how do we run one of these reports?

when you right click on a group device or sensor, go to Edit -> Access Rights

that gives you the rights assignments for the element.

This should already help.
