In a school system we have the overall Board of Education" that has users who can see the entire hive of servers and cameras, but then each individual school has people who need to have admin control over just that school.
So, I'd like to see a feature when creating roles that makes it easy to give admin style permission to things that happen on a single server (or a single location if it has multiple servers) without giving access to anything at the other locations. As opposed to now where it seems like you have to micromanage everything in a custom role. This particularly seems like an issue when it comes to layout sharing and if new cameras get added to a server.
I realize there could be an issue with fail over options if a camera moves to a server at another location. Perhaps you could create the concept of tiered locations in the hive management system so users and cameras could be added to the location. Then if a camera moves to another server during a failover situation the system still knows what location the camera is at, and can keep the permissions in tact.
Therefore if a user role is given admin level permissions for a location, they could see and create users just for that location and create shared layouts, etc.
