Sometimes, IT admins (e.g. in large schools, or where IT admins wear multiple caps) find it necessary to share their Securly admin responsibilities with other co-workers. The assigned co-worker can then take up the regular admin activities of the Securly filter such as creating policies, allowing or blocking websites & keywords, updating OUs, managing reports etc.
As a rule, only the G-Suite domain super admin will have access to the Securly admin UI. Anyone else who needs to be given access to Securly UI would have to be given permissions in G-Suite or included in the Admin Group in the Staff settings.
Enable the ‘Admin Group’ in Securly (Recommended)
You would need to enable the ‘Admin Group’ located in the Staff tab to create a select group of users with access to the Securly UI. Only users included in this group would have access to the Securly UI irrespective of whether they have been given permissions to it via G-Suite. Enabling this feature restricts access to the Securly UI to only users in the ‘Admin Group’.
To enable this feature:
- Login to your Securly UI and navigate to ‘Staff’.
- Select ‘Admin Group’ and click ‘Grant Access’. (Note that in case there are multiple super admins, the first super admin to enable this feature would have the ability to exclude other super admins from the group.)
- Once you acknowledge the terms of this feature you would be able to add users to this group. Click ‘Add User’ to add new users.
To disable this feature:
You can choose to disable this feature by clicking ‘Disable Admin Group’. Access to the Securly UI would then become available to all those granted permissions to the Securly UI via G Suite.
Note: This feature is not available for Azure customers at this time.

These methods give the users full access to control Securly policies for your organization. You can also choose to provide users partial access as well. For this, you would need to create Delegated Reporting Group via the Securly UI. To learn more about Delegated Reporting Group click here and here.
