The centralized Cisco Vision Dynamic Signage Director architecture implements control of multiple venues using Hierarchical Management, which includes the following areas of functionality:
■Organization of Venue Administrator, Venue Operator, location, playlist, and script objects into site-specific groups by the Central Administrator role using venue association to manage access and control.
■Use of the Venue Operator role to limit access and control of event operation at one or more assigned remote sites.
■Use of the Venue Administrator role (introduced in Release 5.0) to provide additional administrative, but limited permissions at the venues authorized by the Central Administrator for that user, for the following areas of Cisco Vision Dynamic Signage Director:
–Control Panel—Content, Control (Script control and Staging), and Schedule.
–Management Dashboard—Read-only access with limited command support.
–Command Center Monitoring—Read-only access.
–Setup—Devices (Display specifications only); Read-only access to Zones & Groups, Channels, and Luxury Suites.
Note: External content, channels, and Dynamic Menu Board (DMB) content are global to all venues. Therefore, these global content items also can be hidden by a Venue Administrator.
Figure 6 shows the use of Hierarchical Management in Cisco Vision Dynamic Signage Director, where a central site user with administrator role-based access control (RBAC) permissions is located at the central site data center where the primary Cisco Vision Dynamic Signage Director server resides.
The remote venues can have venue operators and venue administrators, assigned by the primary administrator.

The Primary Administrator can perform all venue-related functions, including assigning Venue Administrators, Venue Operators, content and scripts into their corresponding venue-specific scopes of control. At the remote venues, the remote Venue Operators can control the scripts associated to their assigned venue scope-of-control.
