Changing the User Level

Changing the User Level

User levels determine operation rights of users. There are 16 user levels, ranging from level 0 to 15. A larger value indicates a higher level. By default, the level of a user logging in through the console port is 15, and the level of a Telnet/STelnet user is 0.

User levels map command levels. A user can use only commands of the corresponding level or lower. Level-1 users can use only the commands at level 1 and level 0, and cannot use commands of higher levels.

To change the level of Level-3 or higher level users, run the following commands (VTY user interface is used as an example):
  • If password authentication is used, run:

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [~HUAWEI] user-interface vty 0 4
    [~HUAWEI-ui-vty0-4] user privilege level 3   //Set the user level to 3.
    [*HUAWEI-ui-vty0-4] commit
  • If AAA authentication is used, run:

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [~HUAWEI] aaa
    [~HUAWEI-aaa] local-user admin123 level 3   //Set the user level of admin123 to 3.
    [*HUAWEI-aaa] commit

Users cannot configure users with a higher level. For example, a Level-5 user can only configure users with level 1 to 5, and cannot configure users with a higher level.

If the user level configured on a user interface conflicts with that configured in the AAA view, the user level configured in the AAA view takes precedence.
