How do I create and assign roles?

A role is a set of portal access permissions that can be assigned to users. There are two default roles that cannot be edited:

  • Super Admin – gives full portal access with edit permissions
  • Super Admin Read-Only – gives full portal access with read permissions

Note: Users with the Super Admin role can assign and revoke portal access for other Users.

To create a role:

  1. Go to https://control.openpath.com/login and log in
  2. Go to Users > Role Management and click the blue Create Role button on the top left corner. Enter a name, description, and assign users.
  3. Select the permissions you’d like this role to have. For example, you can create a role that only gives access to Dashboards. 
    1. If you have the Premium package, you can set granular permissions for roles. See How do I set granular permissions for user roles?
  4. Click the blue Save button in the lower right corner

NOTE: You can assign multiple roles to the same user. The user’s permissions will be cumulative across all assigned roles.
