Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Operations Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager

System Center 2012 – Operations Manager provides eight standard user roles that are created during setup. You can assign groups and individuals to these built-in user roles to provide them with the ability to perform certain tasks and to access certain information.

The following table describes the built-in user roles, which have global scope for the management group. To limit the scope for a user, create a new user role. For more information, see Implementing User Roles.

ImportantImportant
When you add a group to the Operations Manager Administrators user role, you must restart the management server for the change to take effect.
