New Automox Feature: RBAC

Automox hit 88mph this week and introduced RBAC functionality! RBAC (Role-Based Access Controls) allows you to set the rules and permissions for how your fellow Automox administrators use the platform.

Your future hasn’t been written yet, but if you subscribe to a Full plan and are excited to add RBAC to your account, reach out to now! Don't miss our October feature release webinar on Thursday, October 18th at 1:00pm ET. Register here.

Where We’re Going, We Need Roles

With Automox RBAC enabled, you can assign specific roles to your Automox users to better control their access and permissions. Automox RBAC introduces four roles that can be assigned to any user:

  • Full Admin
  • Patch Admin
  • Billing Admin
  • Read Only

Full Admin

Like today, a full admin has access to all of the features and functions in Automox. Full admins control your account, and can manage billing, users, devices, and all patching operations. Full admins are also responsible for setting roles and permissions.

Patch Admin

Patch Admin users can control your devices, groups, and policies, with read-only access to other areas of the Automox platform. These users are ideal for managing specific groups of servers or just patching operations, without managing your users or settings.

Billing Admin

The Billing Admin can only change billing settings, responsible for adding the corporate card or generating an invoice. Billing Admin users have read-only access to other pages but cannot change your patching and policy settings.

Read Only

Read Only users can only see what you have configured in Automox, without the ability to edit any settings or configurations. Read Only users are ideal for generating reports or checking on patching status.

Whoa, This is Heavy

Worried that you will miss out on the launch of RBAC? No need to be! Track the status of RBAC on our roadmap, and look out for October’s product newsletter with updates on RBAC and other major features introduced this month.
