Partitions in Space


Partitions are items within the system that are grouped together for ease of management, forming sub-groupings within an installation. Las particiones permiten a los operadores admin delegar un control más granulado, dividiendo una instalación en diferentes "partes" (edificios, departamentos, oficinas, etc.) that can then be individually managed by other operators.

A common use case for a partition could be the humanities building in a university or an office space located within a larger building that contains multiple office spaces rented by different companies.

Operators who have access to these partitions can only manage the items belonging to them (such as specific access points, users, user access levels, etc.) depending on the partition permissions set by the operator with admin rights (admin operator). See Creating operator groups for more information about the permissions for partitions. Operators who do not have access to a partition cannot manage the items belonging to it.

The partitions functionality is license-dependent. See Registering and licensing Space for more information.

Partitions can include the following items:

There is one default partition in the system (General), which cannot be removed, but you can create additional partitions as needed. An operator can view and modify their own partitions in accordance with the permissions set by the admin operator. However, only the admin operator can create and delete partitions. See Operator group global permissions for more information.

If you delete a partition, you must select another partition to which items in that partition should be moved.
