Records Management Roles
Within the system a role is a named collection of functional user access (termed capabilities), a role may be assigned to one or more users, but a user may be assigned one, and only one, role at a time. In order for a user to be able to use the records management system they must have a role. The system comes with the following pre-defined roles.
- RMA Application Administrator
- Records Manager
- Local Records Officer
- Typical User
The system will support a range of capabilities. A capability is an ability which individually can be granted to a user which controls the behavior of the system with respect to the user, this may be to grant a certain operation or privilege or it may be to alter the behavior of the system for that user.
Capabilities cannot conflict and are not hierarchical, that is to say a user can be granted a single capability and that capability will not grant any further capabilities. Any user may have zero or more capabilities within the system. A user which has no capabilities is effectively barred from the records management system.
The following capabilities are defined; the predefined roles are shown in the table with their respective capabilities - To Come.
