Add Permissions to the Role

By default a new Role has no Permissions, all of the boxes are unchecked. To add Permission you check the box next to the Pages/Actions that you want Users in this Role to be able to perform.

In this example the Role has been given Permission to access the following Contributing Factors for an Incident.

Contributing Factors

  • Add page - for the Add Action
  • Delete page - for the Delete Action
  • Details page - for viewing an individual record
  • List page - for viewing all of the Contributing Factors for an Incident.

The User has not been given Permission for the Summary page.

The Permission controls both Security and the User Interface. If Permission is not granted, the User will not see the item in the Sidebar. It also controls security access to the URL. If the User tries to type the URL into the browser they will be taken to a page that says 'You do not have Access to this Resource.'

You can see how powerful Roles and Permissions are for managing access and security for your Users. You can add, edit, delete Roles at any time as well as change the Permissions within a specific Role.
