Editing a role

  • Navigate to the role list perspective.

  • Click Edit against the role to be edited.

  • Click Yes for the session invalidation confirmation prompt.

  • Make necessary modifications to the role (e.g. changing the role name, selecting/deselecting permissions, etc.)

  • Click Save.

Deleting a role

  • Navigate to the role list perspective.

  • Click Delete against the role to be deleted.

  • Click Yes on the confirmation dialog.

Super admin role

In addition to custom roles, every IPS installation has a default role ROLE_SUPER with permission to all operations. The default admin login of the evaluation distribution has this role.

If you detach ROLE_SUPER from AdminGroup, or remove any role- and/or permission-related permissions from ROLE_SUPER, you will permanently lose access to role and/or permission management.
