Create new permission group

Via the permission groups you define, which team leader rights, author rights and user rights are assigned to the members and dependent on the user type which available reports are assigned to. Example for an assigned report: A team leader has access to the report “Training inventory entries“, which he can show and open on his page Successes.

Further you define via a selection of clients, for which user and authors the permission group is available. Finally you can choose the roles, which are assigned to the members of the group.

If a user is member of multiple permission groups, thus the rights sum up from all groups global.
Example: A user is member of multiple permission groups, which contain a various selection of team leader rights and a various selection of team leader OUs. The user is then team leader for the OUs of all groups and has for all OUs the same rights. This means the rights are summed up from all groups.

To edit and assign permission groups, the author needs the right “Show, create and edit clients”. If you right-click on the title of the permission group and open the context menu, you have the following functions:

Further you can use the mass processing functions Copy and Delete for processing multiple permission groups.

The following functions are available via the context menu of the appropriate permission group title.

To create a new permission group, choose User management → Permission groups  and click then on the button “New permission group”. The Permission groups wizard opens.

Released clients

Allocate clients

Define via a selection of main clients, for which users and authors the permission group is available. For this purpose click on “Add” and select in the opening dialog window one or more clients.

Example:

If you have selected client A in a permission group, you can assign this permission group to these, which are created in client A (= main client). This doesn’t mean that the permission group gives view to content or users of this client. You define the visibility of content and users via the client assignment of the user (Author assistant) and you can limit it via a teamleader function. Further information about you find under User management  New author Clients.

Allocate visible clients

Allocate the visible clients to the appropriate permission group via the button Add. The visible clients are those clients which the user gets as visible clients when the permission group is allocated to him/her. The available clients (see above) are those clients in which you can use the permission group.

If applicable you can remove the visible clients via the button Remove.

Roles

Assign roles

Define which roles the members of the group should get. There are all roles of the released clients available. Therefore choose one client, then a favored role and then click on the button “Add”.

If there no roles created for the chosen client or all available roles already assigned to the client, there will be shown no available roles. You manage the roles in the client wizard.
