Default administration roles

The QMC is delivered with a set of predefined administration roles. Each role is associated with security rules tailored for specific purposes. The RootAdmin is created on installation. This role is automatically assigned to the user who provided the first valid license key to the QMC. The RootAdmin has full access rights to all Qlik Sense resources.

The Administration rights table displays an overview of the default QMC administrator roles, which parts of the QMC they can manage, and what administration rights they have. A HubAdmin cannot manage any areas of the QMC. This role has administration rights only in the hub. For more information see HubAdmin .

Tip note As RootAdmin or SecurityAdmin you have the possibility to create new roles to suit your purposes.
Information noteFor some useful tips regarding how to work with the QMC, see QMC performance – best practices.
