Using the Administration Console

Using the Administration Console
The Zimbra administration console is the browser-based user interface ZCS administrators use to centrally manage Zimbra servers and user accounts.
When you log onto the administration console, the tasks you are authorized to perform display on the console’s Navigation pane. These tasks are based on the rights assigned to the administrator role.
Two types of administrator accounts can be created to manage ZCS:
Global Administrators, who have full privileges to manage servers, global settings, domains, accounts and create other administrators. One global administrator account is initially created when the software is installed. Additional global administrator accounts can be created. Administration tasks can be performed either from the administration console or using the Zimbra command line interface tools.
Delegated Administrators, who are administrators that are granted customized administrator roles by the global administrator to manage different tasks from the administration console. To understand how delegated administration works, see the Delegated Administration chapter.
