Administration Rights

To create and edit Avaya Modular Messaging subscriber accounts, you must be a member of a security role assigned the Subscriber - Administer task. If you are a member of a role assigned the Subscriber - View task, you have read-only access to this application. This is configured in the Voice Mail System Configuration application, Security Roles dialog box. See VMSC - VMD - Security Roles Dialog Box.

Note: Non-administrators can be given rights to perform specific functions, if they are members of a security role assigned the Subscriber - Password Reset task or the Subscriber - Unlock Account task.

Configuring Avaya Modular Messaging for Subscribers

Avaya has added a tab, called Modular Messaging, to every mail-enabled user, contact or group object in Active Directory. You can use the Modular Messaging tab to enable Avaya Modular Messaging for a subscriber.

Note: The Avaya Modular Messaging system ensures that no properties are lost, when a subscriber and an administrator are trying to alter that subscriber’s account at the same time. Whichever user saves the changes first will succeed, either the subscriber in Subscriber Options, or the administrator in Subscriber Accounts. The other user is then prompted to re-enter the modifications before saving again.
