ELIS 2.0 Manual

Manage Users List and ELIS Roles

ELIS roles can be set up to determine which users are visible to other users in the Manage Users screen.

For instance, if a user has been given an administrative role in a user set, that user can see only the users in the appropriate user set on the ELIS Manage Users screen.

When a site administrator views Manage Users, he or she will see all ELIS Users on the site.

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

For example, the user below has an administrator role in the ACME Software user set.

When he logs in, he sees only the ACME Software user set and user sub-sets.

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 user set.

This user can search for and manage users only in the user set(s) to which he or she is assigned the administrator role.

By using ELIS roles, you can now set up user roles with limited administrative functions or limited user sets.
