Associate a Role with a User

Introduction

This topic describes the types of roles that are available in the application and the actions associated with each role.


User Roles

The table defines each user role.

Role Description
ReadonlyUser can view reports and other data but cannot add, edit, or delete accounts
BasicUser cannot add, delete, or configure accounts
BasicPlusUser can delete and configure all accounts except MAV accounts
User can add, delete, and configure accounts
Administrator can add, delete, configure, and access all accounts and edit the user
PartnerSysAdmin can add, delete, configure, and access all accounts and edit the user
SysAdmin can access all partners and perform every action on any account

Note: With the PartnerSysAdmin role, you can access all partners and perform limited actions in their accounts.

Unless you are a customer who is a master partner (also known as Level 1 access), a child partner (also known as Level 2 access), or a PartnerSys Admin, you will not have automatic access to this role. If your organization requires this role, contact support to enable it.
