Citrix Gateway 13.0

Configuring Command Policies for Delegated Administrators

Citrix Gateway has four built-in command policies that you can use for delegated administration:

  • Read-only allows read-only access to show all commands except for the system command group and ns.conf show commands.
  • Operator allows read-only access and also allows access to enable and disable commands on services. This policy also allows access to set services and servers as “access down.”
  • Network permits almost complete system access, excluding system commands and the shell command.
  • Superuser grants full system privileges, such as the privileges granted to the default administrator, nsroot.

Command policies contain built-in expressions. Use the configuration utility to create system users, system groups, command policies, and to define permissions.
