User roles and scopes in "Getting Connected to MindSphere"

There are multiple roles that are available for MindConnect device controlling. A device can be configured and can send the command to the device by an “Admin” user. If you want to ensure that a user cannot configure but can send a command, then you can use “DeviceCommander” role.  If you want to ensure that a user can configure but cannot send a command, then you can use “DeviceConfigurator” role.

The following table shows the list of MindConnect device roles and scopes:
