ManageEngine AssetExplorer can be accessed by different people of your organization. Those who access the application will have a defined role and hence have a defined set of tasks to execute. AssetExplorer allows you to configure the roles and assign these roles to each and every user of the application.
To add roles,
Log in to the AssetExplorer application using your user name and password.
Click the Admin tab in the header pane. This opens the Configuration Wizard page.
Under the Organization Details block, click the Role icon. The next page displays the available list of roles. You can add, edit, or delete roles.
Click the Add New Role link available at the top right corner of the Role List page. This opens the Add Roles form.
In the Add Role form, enter the Role Name. This field cannot be empty and should to be unique.
Set the access permissions for the role. To set the access permission, just select the check boxes beside the access levels defined for each of the modules in the application.
For Example: if you want to provide add permissions for the workstation and solution modules and only view permissions for the rest, select the check box below Add against the Workstation and Solutions modules. For the remaining modules, select the check box below View. Selecting the Add check box automatically enables view permissions also.
Enter the description for the role you are adding.
If you want to add more that one role, then instead of clicking Save, click Save and add new button. This adds the new role and reopens the add role form after displaying a message for the addition of the role.
