Security Rights & Permissions

By default, local administrative privileges on all managed computers are required to connect to these computers using ControlUp. Every time you attempt to run a management action using ControlUp, your Windows credentials will be evaluated according to your current ControlUp mode:

  • Enterprise Mode – Using this mode, ControlUp evaluates both your current Windows credentials and the Security Policy configured using the organization's central configuration. Permissions can be set in Enterprise Mode to ensure that only authorized administrators have access to ControlUp features, regardless of their Windows access rights.
  • Standalone Mode – your Windows user account will always need to have full administrative rights on all target computers. If your account is not a local administrator on the managed computer, the ControlUp Agent refuses the connection and you are not able to monitor the computer's performance or to execute management actions on that computer.

For more information on configuring ControlUp permissions, see the Secure Your Organization article.
For agentless monitoring of virtual machines, access permissions for the hypervisor are required.

For more details, see Hypervisor Monitoring Requirements.
