An Operations Console administrator is an administrative account that grants access to the Operations Console. Operations Console administrators can perform important command line utility procedures, including recovering a Super Admin account in the event that no Super Admin is able to access the system.

Like the Super Admin administrative role, an Operations Console administrator account should only be granted to the most trusted administrators. Many Operations Console tasks require both Super Admin and Operations Console administrator credentials.

You create an initial Operations Console administrator account during Quick Setup, and you can create and manage Operations Console administrators in the Security Console. Only a Super Admin can view or manage an Operations Console administrator account. Likewise, only a user with Operations Console administrator credentials can restore a Super Admin.

Authentication Manager stores Operations Console administrator accounts separately from the user database. User password policies do not apply to Operations Console administrators. You can create a maximum of 42 Operations Console administrators.
