Nitro Application User Management

To access Nitro quicker and more easily, admins can create a Nitro Application User that allows users to log in once to access all the Nitro applications, for example, Nitro Admin Console and Nitro databases (Redshift) for which they have permissions.

  • Admins can manage access to Nitro applications for a user by assigning it to an application role
  • Admins can create, enable, disable, edit, and view users in the NAC

The following application roles are available:
