6.3.Users — role types, creating new users, adding user logins
There are 3 main user/role types in contentACCESS. Each of them have certain permissions depending on the status that they have in contentACCESS:
- A system administrator user has permissions to do any necessary system configurations in contentACCESS Central Administration, and he can access any components of the software. He designates a tenant administrator when creating a tenant. He can also grant system administrator rights to other users of contentACCESS;
- A tenant administrator is allowed to do any necessary configurations on the level of his own tenant, and he can further create standard users to his own tenant. Moreover, he can further assign his tenant administrator roles to a standard user;
- A standard user is either created by a system administrator, or by a tenant administrator. By default, a standard user does not have any specific role in contentACCESS, but a system and tenant administrators can grant further permissions for him. Standard user role is typically created for end users, who obtain access permissions on contentWEB to be able to access their assigned archives.
All currently present users of the system are listed on the Users page (open it with navigating to System ⇒ Security ⇒ Users button). From the user’s context menu (click on “…”) it is possible to edit the user’s details or delete the user from the list. To simplify searching between the users you may use the quick search function. Searching is based on the Display Name and the ID-number. It is also possible to list between the pages.
On the Users page you may add new standard users to the system. For adding a new user to contentACCESS click on + new.
