This article covers how to become a User Administrator/Site Administrator (i.e. Delegated Admin) on the Broadcom Support Portal.


User Administration/Site Administrator (also known as Delegated Admin) is an optional function that is available to Broadcom enterprise customers. It provides the ability for User Administrators to manage user access to their site IDs via Broadcom Support Portal. A User Administrator takes on the responsibility of approving, updating, and revoking access for users for a specified site ID. When a request is generated from an end-user, the User Administrator will be notified via email of the pending request.

Existing Broadcom Support Online user who wishes to manage their own company's users' access must agree to the Terms of Use upon registering for this additional role. Broadcom will process the first User Administrator based on current business rules. After the first User Administrator has been enrolled to the site ID, Broadcom systems will automatically route all subsequent access requests to the User Administrator for that site ID including additional User Administrator requests. The User Administrator takes on the responsibilities of approving, updating, and revoking access for the user for a specific Support Site ID. 


  • User Administrators will have 3 business days to accept or reject the request. If the request is not processed by the User Administrator in 3 business days, Broadcom Customer Care will process the request according to current business rules.
  • In the event Broadcom receives an inquiry from an enrollee about the status of pending enrollment and there is a User Administrator to a site, we will inform the caller that the site has a UA and provide the details of the User Admin.
