How do I assign role-based access control (RBAC) to users?

You can provide user accounts with different levels of access - This article provides information on the role-based access control feature in AppScore

Role-based access control (RBAC) is performed by Administrators and accessed through SETTINGS (Cog icon) in the top right-hand corner of the screen and then USERS  from the left-hand menu.

Assigning a role

Each AppScore user is required to have an assigned role and these roles control the level of access to AppScore's features.

There are 8 different types of user roles that can be assigned to a user.

  • Admin User - Full platform-wide rights with no restrictions 

Administration access should be limited in use

  • Power User - This user has full access to all applications and servers data and limited access to platform settings 
  • Read and Report Only User (R&R) -  This user has read-only access to all applications and servers data
  • Power User Assigned (Power*) - This user has full access to all assigned applications and servers data
  • Default User - This user has view-only access to assigned applications 
  • Technical User - This user role can only see assigned application questions that have been categorised as "technical" and has no visibility of 7Rs recommendations or scoring  
  • Business User - This user role can only see assigned application questions that have been categorised as "business" and has no visibility of 7Rs recommendations or scoring  
  • Application User - This user role can only see assigned application questions that have been categorised as "application" and has no visibility of 7Rs recommendations or scoring  
  • Internal User - This user role has access to questions and areas designated as Internal Only

Technical, Business and Application roles are not mutually exclusive and can be combined in any order.
