A functional ID is a generic account used for an IT asset. Specific to Scrutinizer, functional IDs are User IDs providing access to different areas and access levels within Scrutinizer.
The following functional IDs are included by default with the installation of Scrutinizer.
|root||Interactive||Privileged||Provides user root access to the operating system. User has unrestricted shell access, SSH and console. Some processes run as root (procmon, scheduler, poller) and some scrut_util processes when run by the scheduler.|
|plixer||Interactive||Non-privileged||Provides user access to run all plixer services and/or processes. This is the Primary user for the Interactive Scrut_util utility.|
|pgbouncer||Non-interactive||Non-privileged||Database load balancing|
|postgresql or mysql||Non-interactive||Privileged||Database User|
|root||Interactive||Privileged||Provides full read/write to PostgreSQL/MySQL database for local users.|
|scrutremote||Interactive||Non-privileged||Provides communications between remote systems.|
|scrutinizer||Non-interactive||Privileged||Local DB connections|
|admin||Interactive||Privileged||Full access to management functions|
Interactive usage allows a user to inherit all privileges that were granted to that ID. Non-interactive usage is used internally by the system only and cannot be assigned to a user.
Privileged access level is defined as an ID with elevated entitlements such as a system administrator or super user. Non-privileged access allows just the access level required for the intended functions of the ID.
