Roles in Datameer are assigned to users to specify which permissions the user/group is allowed. Every user in Datameer must have a role.

Datameer allows administrators to add custom roles to give specific permissions to users and groups.

The set up and configuration of user roles can be found under the Admin tab and then selecting Roles.

Creating and Editing Roles

  1. To make a new role, click New Role.
    To edit a current role, highlight the role to edit.

  2. Type in a name for the role.

  3.  Select the permissions for the role. New roles must have at least one permission selected. Clicking the parent box adds or removes all sub-permissions for that parent. For a full table of available permissions, see Permissions and Default Settings.

  4. Click Save to confirm the new role or changes

A user who has the user management permission to edit Roles can edit his own role as well. Datameer recommends this capability only be given to that of the generic default role, ADMIN.

Deleting a Role

To delete a role:

  1. Click the Admin tab.
  2. Click Roles on the left side of the administration dashboard.
  3. Click the garbage can for group to be deleted.
  4. Click Delete to confirm the deletion of a role.  

Roles can't be deleted while an active user is assigned that role. The user currently assigned to the role trying to be deleted must be disabled or have their role changed.

Permissions and Default Settings 

The following table lists all available permissions and which ones are default for the ADMIN or ANALYST roles. Permissions in bold are parent permissions; selecting the parent automatically selects all of the sub-permissions. 

The default ADMIN role has all permissions and may not be edited or deleted. Be cautious when assigning this role to users/groups.
