Creating Compliance Accelerator roles

If none of the predefined roles provides the exact set of permissions that you want to assign to users, you can create your own roles.

You must have the Manage Roles permission to create roles. By default, users with the application role of App User Admin have this permission.

To create a role

  1. Click the Application tab in the Compliance Accelerator client, and then click the Roles tab.

  2. Click New at the top of the window.

  3. In the right pane, type a unique name and an optional description for the role.

    The role name can contain up to 50 characters. The description can contain up to 250 characters.

  4. In the Scope box, choose whether to make the permissions that are associated with the role effective throughout the application or at the department level only.

    Users with application roles can only perform tasks in a specific department if they have been assigned the appropriate roles in that department. To perform tasks in more than one department, the users must be assigned the appropriate role in every department that they need to access.

    The selection that you make determines the permissions that are available.

  5. Choose the permissions to associate with the role.

  6. Click Save.
