Roles are used to manage access permissions for users. For example, one user may be given a role with permission to only access invoicing, while user may be given a different role, which will enable them to view and edit configurations. A set of roles are created for you by Lumen with different sets of permissions, but you can create your own custom roles as well.
To view the list of roles for your organization, sign into Media Portal and navigate to Portal Admin > Role Management and a list of roles for your domain are displayed. Clicking on a role will display the details for the role - who created the role, when it was created, when it was last edited, what access groups you can apply it to, and what permissions are assigned to the role.
To create a new role, Click on the “Create New Role” button on the Role Management page. Input the name and description for the role, and select a type for the role. Domain roles can be applied to domain access groups (The parent access groups created by Lumen) and standard roles can be applied to any other access groups. select the checkbox(es) for the permissions you want to apply when you assign this role to a user, and save to create the role.
To edit an existing role, simply select the role and click on the “Edit Role” button. Any changes made to the role will be applied to all users who have been assigned that role. In the same way, you can also delete an existing role by clicking on the “Delete Role” button instead. Please note that you cannot delete a role which is still being used. You’ll first have to remove all user associations with the role before you can delete it.
