Platform: Risk Assessment Platform
Applies to: Super Admin and Company Admin Users
User and Permissions Management
There are 2 functions within the User Access Controls menu:
These features allow Super Admin or Company Admin users to create users and assign them one or more roles that define what functions and information they can access within the platform.
A set of out-of-the-box (global) roles exist and can be viewed in the Application Role screen to determine which roles are most appropriate for each user.
- Super Admin - Reserved role. Manages settings, application configuration, company accounts, users and global content. Has view-only access to Risk Assessments.
- Company Admin (CA) - Manages settings, company account, users and content for the company. Has view-only access to Risk Assessments.
- Approver (EU) - Manages content for the company and has full access to Risk Assessments, including the ability to approve risk factors, archive and unpublish.
- Standard (EU) - Can view content setup for the company and has full access to Risk Assessments but not the ability to approve risk factors, archive or unpublish.
- Client (EU) - Can view risk assessments and enter information into the assessment units.
- View Only (EU) - Can view content setup for the company and can view risk assessments. No ability to update or edit.
- For Restricted - Intended for use with the "Restricted" setting. Restricted users cannot see any assessments or assessment units other than those in which they are set as "Owners" (in the Assessment Unit Details window). For those assessment units, they can enter and submit information on the Context, Risk Analysis, and Controls Assessment pages.
Every company must have at least one Company Admin.
When multiple roles are assigned to a user, they receive all enabled permissions from both roles.
Newly invited users who have not yet activated their accounts (pre-activation users) can be set as Assignees on risks or controls, and those with the 'Restricted' setting can also be set as Owners on Assessment Units.

Application Role Management
This feature allows Company Admin users to define roles with permissions for features and information a user can access.
Enabling or Disabling Permissions
The Risk Assessment Platform has out-of-the-box (Global) roles and permissions.
- Super Admins can change these roles or add more roles.
- Company Admins can create more roles at the company level.
The permissions enabled/disabled within each role determine what functions users with that role can perform and what information they can see within the application.
Before configuring roles, Company Admins should decide:
- What are the appropriate roles for their organisation (and/or their clients)
- What permissions should be enabled and what permissions should be disabled
