Stakeholders – local management of pre-determined services and user access to those services
Stakeholders are similar to Administrators as they have access to the Blacksands Manager. However, a Stakeholder is limited in his/her functionality. Stakeholder access to any Service can only be granted by an Administrator.
When a User / Device is designated a Stakeholder for a specific Service, then that User / Device will be able to manage other User’s access to that particular Service. The Stakeholder is also provided the ability to Modify the Service fields. The Stakeholder cannot Add, Delete, or Modify Users. Nor can the Stakeholder Add or Delete Services.
A Stakeholder is restricted to only managing User access to the specific Service/s they are Stakeholders for. A Stakeholder can be a member of other Services as well.
To Add a Stakeholder to an existing Service, a Blacksands Administrator selects the particular Service.
Then the Administrator selects the ‘Show Stakeholder Management’ icon.
A new window similar to the ‘Add Users to Service Window’ opens. The Administrator selects the particular User / Device selects the right arrow and adds that User / Device to the ‘In Service’ list. Once the User / Device turns green the Stakeholder access is granted. Similarly, an Administrator can remove a Stakeholder by selecting the User/Device from the ‘In Service’ list and selecting the left arrow. The User / Device is moved to the ‘Not In Service’ list and when it turns green the Stakeholder access is revoked.
When the User and associated Device (now Stakeholder) accesses the Blacksands Authorizer a new Service appears in the drop down list of Services: ‘BlackSands Manager’. The Stakeholder will only see Services that he/she has the ability to manage within the Blacksands Manager Service.
