Important Information about roles and permissions

  • If a user is assigned to multiple roles, the permissions for those roles are cumulative. This means that if a user is assigned to 2 roles, and one role grants a permission while the other denies it, the user is granted that permission.
  • Permissions are grouped into functional areas to make it easier to configure.
  • Some permissions are dependent on others:
    • Billing and Finance requires the View Billing permission in order to run a billing batch.
    • View Rates shows the rate values in the Add Time in a ticket.
    • Help Desk requires the Update Ticket permission in order to add time and expenses to a ticket.
  • When permissions are denied, those user interface elements are hidden.
