Tech Tips: Multiple Administrators Support on SonicOS 6.5

Hello Everyone,

There are instances where the UTM might be managed by multiple administrators and you would like to specifically assign the right privileges to the individual administrator account. We have SonicWall Administrators, Limited Administrators, Read-Only Administrators and Guest Administrators available from a long time. The KB below explains how SonicWall handles multiple administrators concurrently, what are the different administration modes and priority levels we assign to each role.

On SonicOS 6.5, we have introduced three new administrative roles: System Administrator, Cryptographic Administrator and Audit Administrator. For more details on all the administrative roles and how to configure them, please refer the KB below:

Thanks and stay safe!

    Good Article!!

    We started supporting these three new administrative roles(System Administrator, Cryptographic Administrator and Audit Administrator) from 6.2 onward.

    6.2 admin guide has the basic info of these administrators.

    Thanks & Regards,


  • Hey @Poorni_5 ,

    I checked on a TZ 500W with firmware and I do see those options available. Thanks for pointing that out.

    The source from where I got this info was wrong. I will check with the right person to fix that.
