Function documentation Administration Roles 

Use

The portal provides several administrator-specific roles with the portal. The default administration tools supplied with the portal are allocated to these roles, based on their relevancy to the intended task of each administrator.

You can customize the pre-configured role structures so that the standard tools shipped with the portal align with the administrative groups in your working environment. If needed, you may also create new administrative roles and then reassign the necessary worksets or iViews. See also Delegated Administration.

Features

The following table provides further information about the standard administration roles shipped with the portal:

Role
