Working with distribution owners and rights

In environments where there are many Management Suite users, it can get confusing knowing which distribution packages, delivery methods, and scheduled tasks each user is responsible for. To help with this problem, Management Suite makes the user that created the distribution package, delivery method, or scheduled task the default owner of that item. Only the owner and RBA Administrators/Software distribution configuration users can see these private items.

Private items appear under the My delivery methods, My packages, or My tasks trees. Administrative users can see items for all users under the All distribution packages, All delivery methods, and All tasks trees.

When users create a distribution item, the Description page has an Owner option. Users can select Public if they want all console users to see that item. Administrators can select a specific user in addition to Public.

For more information on using role-based administration with software distribution, see Software distribution.
