How to Create New Users and assign Permissions in the Management Portal

A best practice on using Management Portal accounts is to have a single main account for your organization or at least the local deployment you manage and invest.  Having a single account for your organization, will allow a centralization and control of all host, devices, licenses and benefits of the entire deployment to be managed.  No matter where it is deployed or broken in sectors. 


In one of the many possible case scenarios, your organization may have many branches and an admin in each branch.  Within your account you can create profiles and grant partial or full permissions to the users that need it.   Simply put, you can have your main Management Portal account, and have different sub accounts under it with different and particular levels of access.
