Add Some Roles in LanGuard

Feature requirement: Add Some Roles in LanGuard
Our customers have submitted some suggestion about adding some roles in LanGuard:
Some multi-national enterprises have more than one system or network administrators.
Some of them are in charge of vulnerability scanning and some are in chage of patch management.
They have different roles for IT, eg: IT security Auditor, Client Service (Windows Workstations), Network Engineer (Network equipemnt), OS&DB Engineer (Windows Server and DB server) etc.
But now the GFI LanGuard only has one role --global administrator. And it has full permissions.
I think it will not meet the needs of large-scale companies any more.
We advise you can add roles management in future version updates.
It is better that this feature not only affective in the console (C/S architecture) but also in the browser (B/S).
As to the roles' management, you can refer to GFI Archiver or similar product like Nessus.
That's our suggestion and look forward to your reply.

This is already possible.

Different roles are available in the Central Management Server.

Each Administrator needs to have his own LanGuard instance that he manages, applies and approves patches, reporting is pushed to the central server for a unified view.

    I also need this feature, installing multiple GFI servers defeats the point of having a centralised system. All of your competition has this feature already it's not unusual to expect more than a single administrator to be able to work from the same console.

    Thank you for your reply! Here is the reply from our support team:
    The Central Management Server is just used as a report platform. It is read-only but cannot be modified.
    However, we need mutiple roles in GFI LanGuard's console to manage different contents.
    If it already possible please tell us where we can find the configration.
