New App Functions in 4.4
  • CS_ADMIN_FUNCTIONAL: Allows the user to access all admin functions except the logging area
  • CS_ADMIN_TECHNICAL: Allows the user to access only the logging area–no admin functions
  • CS_ROLE_ANONYMOUS: Allows the user access to the "Access Denied" page. A user with CS_ROLE_ANONYMOUS with READ set to FULL can access the login screen without the "Access Denied" error.
  • CS_ROLE_STAFF*: Allows the user to access the staff menu within the application
  • CS_ROLE_STUDENT*: Allows the user to access the student menu within the application
  • CS_ROLE_USER*: Allows the user to gain entry into the application. Every user MUST have this role and must have CREATE set to FULL

NOTE:
The following functions are considered flags that must be set in order for other permissions to work:

  • CS_ROLE_STAFF: Must be set to FULL for everything if the role pertains to Staff of any sort
  • CS_ROLE_STUDENT: Must be set to FULL for everything if the role pertains to a Student of any sort
  • CS_ROLE_USER: Must have FULL permission across the board for all roles you create

 

Access

Three types of access in Dashboard include Full, Restricted, and None:

FULL: User has complete access
RESTRICTED: User has access that is restricted

"Restricted" access is the same as "Full" access across all uAchieve web apps except the uAchieve Planner.

NONE: User has no permissions

Control Access

Permission must be set to use each separate function of the Dashboard.

A simple formula to remember for setting permissions is: Action + Function + Access Type = Permission Setting

For example:

Read + SEC_ADVISEES +  FULL = Users able to add advisees to other users
Read + SEC_ADVISEES + RESTRICTED = Users can add advisees to select users
Read + SEC_ADVISEES + NONE = Users cannot add advisees to any other users
