If your administration requirements change or there is a realignment of your work processes where a number of roles need to be amalgamated, you can combine two or more Roles into one. Merging Roles saves time. Rather than creating a new Role and reselecting permissions that combines already selected options.
When merged, SolarWinds N-central combines all permissions into the new Role. The new Role includes all the permissions from the selected Roles. No permissions are removed.
- Click Administration > User Management > Roles.
- Click the check box next to the roles you want to merge and click Merge Roles.
- Enter a name and description for the new, merged Role.
- Click Delete Merged Roles to delete the individual roles after the merge.
Make sure you do not require the Roles you are merging before you select this check box.
- Click Save.
When you view the new Role, the combined permissions are highlighted. If you chose to delete the previous Roles during the merge, they will no longer appear.
