Vulcan's Roles

Each role can be defined based on these metrics:

  • Access to business groups - A list of all the business groups each role has permission to access.

  • Access to modules - A list of all the modules each role has permission to access.

  • Permissions to actions - A list of actions per module each role has can do.

Admin - Admins have the full privilege to use all of the functionality in Vulcan's product and have full access to the data within the system.
Therefore, Admins can modify configuration settings (like users, org SLA, and risk prioritization) as well as modify all of the operational features.

Standard - Standard users have the full privilege to use all of the functionality in Vulcan's product. However, unlike Admins, they do not have access to consume or modify configuration settings.

Custom - Custom roles can have configurable permission set based on:
(1)  Access to business groups (2) Accesses to modules in the platform (3) Permissions for actions per module.

Notes:
• Admin and Standard roles defined by default, Standard role can be modified.
• All users must be attached to a role. 

Manage Roles

In the settings menu, click on the Users roles:

Under the Roles table, you can see the following fields:

  • Role name

  • Access to business groups - A list of all the business groups each role has permission to access.

  • Permission level - Admin /Standard / Custom

  • Users - The number of users that attached to the particular role

Create / edit roles

Click on the role you want to edit or press the "add a role" button to create a new one.

Choose for each role the permission set based on:
(1)  Access to business groups
(2) Access to modules in the platform

Once the role created/modified, you can assign users to this role from the Users table on this same "Users and Roles" tab.
