Crowd Server Administration

Crowd Server 3.2 has two Administrator roles available, System administrator and Admin.

What is the difference?

Can I delegate Group admin to a user that is not a "Crowd Server Admin"?

I checked with a Crowd developer and he confirmed that the two roles are equivalent. There's no differentiation in Crowd the product (yet), and connected applications do not use this information (yet). Plugins to Crowd are free to use the information, though we're not aware of any that do.

We're running 3.2.0 and I just checked the difference between the two modes:

  • Admin
    • Can view my users profile
    • Can change my password
    • Can view my groups
    • Can view the applications I can login to
  • Sys Admin
    • Full Crowd functionality - can manage applications/users/groups/directories/system config etc

Unsure if the admin mode isn't working properly in 3.2.0, but the comment of admin and sysadmin effectively being the same doesn't seem accurate

 

re: group admin only - we needed to delegate just group membership management to a sub-set of users and were able to build something quite nice using the APIs available.
