Setting Up AIM Users
This chapter describes how to add users to Advanced Insight Manager (AIM). Users
are able to view only incidents and intelligence messages to which they have
appropriate permissions. Permissions are based on the user group(s) to which users
are assigned and the association of those user groups to specified device groups.
For more information about configuring user groups, see “Setting Up AIM Users” on
page 89. For more information about configuring device groups, see “Creating
Device Groups” on page 72.
Additionally, users can be assigned permissions that allow them access only to a
subset of AIM operations. If the Multi-Site license is present, allowing for multiple
organizations, users have access to organizations and the devices contained in
them based on their user group and device group associations.
Incidents and Intelligence Updates assigned to users are filtered based on the user’s
user group and device group associations.

Unique user name
Privileges that determine the operations that can be performed
