Delegated Administration Quick Start : Edit the Filter Lock
Edit the Filter Lock
Delegated Administration | Web Protection Solutions | v8.4.x, v8.5.x | 30-Nov-2018
Unconditional Super Administrators can create a Filter Lock to define categories and protocols that delegated administrators cannot permit for any clients. When delegated administrators edit policies, categories and protocols that a Super Administrator has blocked via the Filter Lock appear Blocked and Locked (the red Block icon is displayed with an overlapping Lock icon).
Clients managed by the Super Administrator role can be given access to categories and protocols blocked and locked for clients managed in other roles. For example, if company executives, members of the legal team, or investigators were managed by the Super Administrator role, they can be given access to sites blocked for most members of the organization.
