  • Administrators

Web SA Add-On

Operators with ‘manage operators’ permission will be able to create and manage operators from DLS and Web SA clients but they would only be able to add/edit role types from DLS client (pending permission). No roles types can be created from Web SA Client by operators at any level.

Stand-Alone & Workgroup Web SA

Administrator, SA Administrator and Facility Managers by default, will be able to create and manage operators but will not be able to create customized role types in Web SA packages. They will only be able to use default role types and there permission attributes.

User & Permission Management Layout

Existing ‘User Manager’ and ‘Permission Manager’ sections shall no longer be available under ‘Tools’.

The data grid on this window is one-click editable. For example, to edit any entry, just click on it and you would be able to edit it.

  1. Operator: This column will list all the operators created by Administrator in DLS and Web SA. To edit any operator name, click on the name which will become editing field:
  2. Language: This column will show the language assigned to the operator. Click on this field to edit the language for particular operator.
  3. Locked: Enable/Disable operator on DLS or Web SA package.

  5. Expiration Time: Operator DLS login expiration time can be viewed set and edit in operator specific field. Operator should not be allowed to select any previous dates.
  6. Role: This column will show under which role operator is assigned. Operator can only be assigned to one role at a time:
  7. Groups: This column will outline the ‘Account Groups’ for which operator has permissions to work in. The ‘Account Groups’ can be added/edited in the same grid:

Please note, if an operator with administrative rights is created, this operator will still follow the account group permissions. For example, if an operator is created with administrative rights and only given access to ‘Ontario’ folder (shown above) then upon login this operator should only have access to accounts under ‘Ontario’ folder.

Existing Customer Permissions

Permissions have been revamped in such a fashion that it will be easier for operators to create new role types, assign permission attributes and create new operators. With new permissions flow, we have moved to one-to-one permission model (one operator assigned to one role type). It is must recommended that you revisit your permissions to make sure your desired permission configuration is still programmed and recreate if necessary.
