The Permissions section (on the same screen as Customers and Cloud Nodes) provides for users to be assigned one of several roles for access control. A user’s assigned role (Integrator, Admin, Manager, or Reporter) determines what specific Cloud Node features and options may be accessed or denied (People, Groups, System Events, Auto Open, Elevators, Reports, Partitions, Door States, Live Events, and Configuration).
Add Permission Screen
To add users and assign permissions, click the + icon next to Permissions. The Add Permission screen is displayed.
Enter the email address of the user to be assigned a permission role that will log in and utilize pdk io.
Click inside this field or on the down arrow to view the list of roles. Select the appropriate role for the user from the list. Click ADD.
Reporter - May only access and manage Reports and Live Events. May not configure or edit any settings on the system.
Manager - May add, delete, and edit users and may only assign rules to doors to which they have been assigned. A Manager may access and manage People, Groups, Auto Open, Reports, Door States, and Live Events.
Admin - May access and manage People, Groups, System Events, Auto Open, Elevators, Reports, Partitions, Door States, and Live Events. May not access or manage Configuration.
Integrator - Has full access to make edits for all aspects of the system, both users and doors. May access and modify all Cloud Nodes, including Configuration and Ecards.
The following table illustrates the roles and allowed permissions of the various Cloud Node features that can be accessed with each of the roles. To illustrate, the permission role of Reporter may only access Reports and Live Events.
An invitation email is sent to the user informing them of being added to the system. Until the invitation is accepted by the user, (Invitation Pending) appears in the Permissions section rather than the new user’s name.
Once the email is accepted by the user, (Invitation Pending) is replaced by the user’s name associated with the email address.
