System Admin Permission Description

Perform System Administration

Gives a group full administrative privileges in the Administration Console, and automatically grants those group members every permission except for the ones that administrators do not need:
  • Require Authentication to Log In

  • Require Authentication to Play Messages

This permission overrides any revoked permissions inherited by membership in other groups, except the revoked Perform Server Administration permission itself.

Record Name Prompts for Another User

Grants permission to record name prompts for other users, as well as groups and address book entries. Name prompts improve the usability of the Vocera system; the Genie plays these name prompts when necessary, instead of synthesizing speech.

Login as Another User

Grants permission to login as another user and automatically grants permissions to the user's groups and permissions, except for the ones that require:
  • Authentication to Log In

  • Authentication to Play Messages
