About Role Management

The Role Management section of Security maintains the Roles and attaches Users and Features to these Roles.  The system provides roles that should cover all of the standard positions and activities of users on a project.  Role Management allows the responsible users ability to modify the existing roles as well as assign users to roles.  The role of Administrator contains all roles - that role is the top and Administers to all other roles. 

The user logs into the system with a Syniti Knowledge Platform ID and password setup through the Syniti Support service. This single sign on (SSO) process with authenticate the user's credentials based upon the assigned Tenant and User ID. When a user logs into Syniti Migrate for the first time via SSO, if the user does not have an account within Syniti Migrate they are automatically created. When doing so, the system assigns them roles based on their setup in the SynitiKnowledge Platform

The role mapping from Syniti Knowledge Platform to Syniti Migrate translate as follows:

NOTE:  The Administrator role contains all access, and that role can grant access for others to have Administrator access.  USER ADMIN was designed to be given to a Help Desk person, or some other non-ADMIN  so they can create new users.   This role is not provided Administrator access so that they cannot provide Administrator access for themselves or others.

A set of default Roles installs with the system.  The Role Description provides details for the use of each Role.
