Purpose

The document decribes the various user types and recommended permissions for different types of users in a Disclosure Management (DM) application.

Types of users

 Administrator

This is different from the System Admin user defined during Disclosure Management installation. The role of this user is to perform system administration duties. In a production environment it is advisable and considered best practice to grant only the Standard-Admin role which does not allow the Administrator to change or access any report.

Power or Global users

These are a few selected users who have access to ALL reports, usually reserved for the user who is responsible for the overall corporate reporting function and advanced users who carry out support functions.

Local users

Most users are local users who have permissions assigned at the Report or Chapter Level.

Roles and Permissions

The purpose of a role is to provide a user with permissions. The screenshot below displays all the seeded roles that come with DM. In most of the cases, it is not necessary to change the standard roles defined in DM after setup. If new roles are needed, it is recommended to create new roles and define customized set of permissions:
