Manage Users list and ELIS Roles

Manage Users list and ELIS Roles:

As of ELIS 1.8.7, ELIS roles can be setup to determine which users are visible to another user in the Manage Users screen.

For instance, if a user has been given an Administrative Role in a Cluster, they can see only the users in their own cluster in the ELIS Manage Users screen.

When a Site Administrator the Curriculum Administration block > Users > Manage Users they see all ELIS Users on the site.

Manage users page

When ELIS roles are used, this list can be limited to the users that are in a cluster, curriculum, track, or ELIS class.

For example, the user below has a Cluster Administrator role in the ACME Software cluster.

Assigning a role in a cluster

When he logs in, he sees only the ACME Software cluster and sub-clusters.

Cluster Administrator view of Curriculum Admin block

When this user visits the Manage Users screen, instead of seeing all the users on the site, he sees only the users in the ACME Software cluster.

Cluster Administrators view of the Manage Users screen

This user can search for users in his cluster, etc. but can only see the users that are in the cluster(s) he is assigned this Cluster Administrator role in. The users the person in the Cluster Administrator role can see in the Bulk User Actions screen is similarly limited to the users in their Organizational Cluster.

By using ELIS roles, you can now setup user roles with limited administrative functions, limited to users in their the cluster, curriculum, etc. where they have been given administrative authority via ELIS role assignments.
Note: Currently, all areas of ELIS other than reports are filtered by ELIS role. Reporting will be filterable by ELIS role in ELIS 1.9.
