About sites

Sites allows you to delegate the management of printers and print queues to the IT personnel at the local site. With the role as Site manager they can do their job without having excess permissions to change global settings and printing at other sites.

  • Site
    • Concept of a site is based on networks.
    • Multiple networks can belong to a site.
    • A network can belong to one site.
    • Printers (and thereby print queues) will belong to the site of their network.
  • Site manager group
    • Add groups whose users will have the role as Site manager for the site in question.
