Roles

Create roles that can be assigned to users, states, transitions, and filters on the Roles tab. A role assigned to a user determines who has permission to perform modifications to a node's internal state or transition a node to a new state. A Role assigned to a state, transition, or filter indicates the role a user must have to edit the state, perform the transition, or utilize the filter.

Add

Click to create a new row (or role) and edit fields as necessary.

Delete

Select a row and click to remove the entry. A confirmation screen will ask you to confirm deletion.

IMPORTANT: Select File > Save to record changes you make in Process Framework Administration Tool to the database.
NOTE: Each role has a specific set of permissions in the default workflow. For example, if you want your approval officer to have the ability to create new sessions, you must assign the Session Editor as well as the Session Approval Officer role.
NOTE: If you have licensed Designer and installed Workflow Manager, additional roles will be visible.
