Cordial user roles and permissions utilize a role-based access control model, which allows you to group permissions into roles, and then assign roles to individual users based on their scope of responsibility within the platform.
- Permissions - access rights to specific areas and functions of the platform
- Roles - collections of permissions granted to users in your account
You can create roles with varying levels of system access and assign them to users according to their access needs. Multiple roles can be assigned to a single user as a way to further differentiate levels of access between users.
Your account will have two predefined user roles. These roles cannot be edited or deleted.
|Cordial Admin (previously Admin)||All permissions.|
|Cordial Power User (previously User)||Permissions to view other users and account transports.|
Manage Roles and Permissions
To create new and manage existing roles, navigate to the Roles and Permissions page from the account menu in the upper right corner of the platform.
You will see a table of available roles in your account.
Hover the arrow next to the role name to see the available options:
- View - See the details of a predefined role
- Edit - Update role name, description, and permissions
- Duplicate - Create a new role using an existing role as a template
- Delete - Permanently remove the role from your account (only roles that are not assigned can be deleted)
Click New to create a role. Give your role a name, description, and the permissions it will grant to your users.
Saved roles can be assigned to individual users from the Users page.
