Role Permissions

There are three standard roles that have access to all assets and Risk Meters:

  • Administrator
  • Normal User (Read/Write)
  • Read Only


Using Role Based Access Control (RBAC) you can limit access to assets and Risk Meters. These access groups can be either:

  • Read/Write
  • Read Only


Each type of user has similar permissions with the difference that those under RBAC are limited to what asset they can act upon.
