Infoblox roles and permissions

Define the roles and permissions that the Infoblox activities need to access the various resources on the Infoblox server.

Admin groups

There are three types of admin groups on an Infoblox server:
  • Superuser
  • Default
  • Limited Access

To perform specific operations on the Infoblox server, the Limited Access user must have a minimum set of privileges for the desired resources, using either the user interface or an API. These privileges are based on read and read/write access. For more information, refer to the "About Admin Groups" section in the Infoblox NIOS Administrator Guide.

Permission hierarchy

  1. User: A user can be part of multiple groups.
  2. Group: A group can have many roles.
  3. Role: Each role consistes of specific resource permissions.

Required permissions

The ServiceNow Infoblox activity pack requires appropriate read and read/write privileges for these resources:
  • Network
