Security Role Management

Security roles are sets of security rights which can be assigned to users.

Important: If a person does not have a security right for an action, the result is absence of the respective GUI components in the Application User Interface; for example, if a person does not have a security role with the right Todo:Read_Own, the To-do List navigation item will not be displayed in the application when the person is signed in.

Creating Security Roles

You can create security roles with a custom set of security rights.

To create a new security role, do the following:

  1. Open the Security Roles view.
  2. Click Add Role .

    A new page with a list of security rights appears.

  3. In the Role name text field, enter the new security role name.
  4. Select security rights for the person.

The new security role is available in the list in the Security view and is ready to be assigned to a user.

Deleting Security Roles
