Role Based Access Control

Acceldata Torch ships with the following two roles:

  • Super Admin: Super Admin is a super user with permissions to all the pages and actions.
  • User: Super admin has capability to create users. A super admin can grant access to view any page and perform any actions in the UI. Super admin can restrict users from viewing any page in the user interface.

Roles Configuration

Roles can be configured only by a super admin. Consequently, the Roles icon is visible only if you log on to Acceldata as a super admin.

Click from the top menu bar and select the Roles tab to configure roles. You can configure the left side navigation, actions, queues and users that a role can see while creating a role definition.The Roles page lists all the roles available in the system.

note
  • AD Mapping: Roles can be mapped to either groups or users fetched from Active Directory or users can be configured in the Acceldata platform.

Create a Role

To create a role, do the following:

  1. Click the Create Role button. The Create Role wizard is displayed.

  2. Specify a name for the role.

  3. Under Page Permissions, select the pages that you want the role to view in their side navigation.

    note

    Some pages have sub topics within them which can be again individually selected. Only the selected topics in the page are displayed in the side navigation for that particular role. On selection of a page, all the topics within it will be automatically selected. Click the right pointing arrow key to view and uncheck the topics that shouldn't be visible for the role.

    note

    Some pages have options that do not exist in the side navigation. These options are actions on that page. For example, the Discover page in the side navigation does not consist of any sub topics. However, in the Create Role wizard, the Discover topic has sub options or actions that can be performed by a user. One of the actions in the Discover topic is Add Business Entity. If this option is not selected, a user with the Add Business Entity role will not have permissions to add a business entity and will not see the Add Business Entity button on the Discover page.
