Managing Roles and Organizations
For access control at project level, DigitalSuite uses roles that provide users with the access rights required to fulfill their tasks. To prepare for access control at project level, you define the roles independently of any project.
Defining roles includes the following tasks:
Creating the roles that represent a set of a user's responsibilities and the access rights required to take the corresponding actions.
You can prepare the roles as required by your projects. For example, the roles may reflect the division of work in your company.
Creating organizations and grouping the roles into these organizations.
How you make use of organizations is a design decision and depends on your projects. For example, organizations may reflect the structure of a company, or each project may have its own organization.
Building role hierarchies.
In a hierachy, a parent role may have multiple child roles. Whether and how you use role hierachies is a design decision and depends on your projects. For example, role hierarchies may be useful to map the structure of your company.
You use the Role Management module of DigitalSuite Studio for the tasks listed above. For detailed conceptual information on role-based access mechanisms at project level, refer to Roles and Access Rights.
