Icinga Web permissions and restrictions (how do they work, examples)

Permissions and restrictions are something used to control how much access is provided to a particular user or user group. Therefore one must first understand what is the role of a user or a group.

When the Icinga Web 2 is installed a default user with admin access is configured.
