Add Users and User Groups
From the SkylineGlobe Server Manager’s Users page, you can view and manage the users allowed to administer and access resources on SkylineGlobe Server. All users are assigned user roles which define their level of access: super administrators can manage all their server’s sites, settings, users and layers, site administrators can manage all their site’s layers and users and some server settings, publishers can view and edit published layers, while viewers can only view published content.
From the User’s page you can also manage your user groups. User groups enable you to easily provide view or edit access to a specific group of users (of which you are a member).
Add Virtual Private Servers (Sites)
SkylineGlobe Server supports the hosting of multiple virtual servers (“sites”) on a single server. These virtual sites provide complete separation between customer layers and allow management and administration of the sites by the customer’s admin users. Each site is distinct and separate, with its own URL and its own data sources, layers, groups/users, settings, aliases, TE4W configurations, statistics, site administrator, etc.
Site Administrators can perform SGS management and configuration activities for their own site, while Super Administrators can log in to SGS Manager to any of the server’s sites to perform SGS management and configuration activities, including management of all the server’s data sources, layers, groups/users, and settings, and cross-site operations, e.g., setting cross-site aliases and permissions. The required site must be selected from the drop-down list at the top of any of the SGS Manager pages before performing the management activities for the specific site.
General site management, i.e. addition, deletion and editing properties of a server’s sites is performed from the SGS Manager Settings tab, only by Super Administrators. The Sites section in the SGS Manager Settings tab is not displayed for other users. More about: Adding users and setting user properties >
