Note

Keep in mind that the user will be able to work with Certificates when creating installers. A user must be assigned Use permission for Certificates with access to the static group where certificates are contained. If a user wants to deploy ESET Management Agent, that user must have Use permissions for the Certification Authority that the actual server certificate is signed by. For information on how to divide access to Certificates and Certification Authority, read this example.

A user needs to be assigned Use permission for Policies that are selected in Advanced > Initial installer configuration  > Configuration type when creating an All-in-one installer, GPO installer or SCCM script.

A user needs to be assigned Use permission for Licenses if the license for static group is specified.
