Select User Management > Roles.
A role is a group of one or more Users.
For more information about users and roles in FME Flow, see Role-Based and User-Based Access Control.
The default columns displayed in the Roles table are:
- Name - Name of the role.
- Users - User accounts assigned to the role.
FME Flow provides a set of default roles:
Provides full access to FME Flow, including the Web User Interface.
Provides workspace authors access to FME Flow to publish, author, and test new workspaces.
Provides the minimal access to FME Flow required to run workspaces.
|fmesuperuser||Authorized to access all resources of FME Flow, including existing and newly-created resources.||admin|
|fmeuser||Provides users access to the Web User Interface and Web Services.||user|
Adding and Removing Roles
To add a role, click New. Alternatively, select an existing role and click Duplicate. A dialog displays to add a new role. This dialog is similar to Configuring an Existing Role, below.
To remove a role, select it and click Remove.
Configuring an Existing Role
To configure an existing user role, click an entry in the Roles table. The Edit Role page opens. Configure the following settings, and click OK to save your changes.
To assign users to the role, click inside the field and select a user in the drop-down. To remove users from the role, click the "x" beside the user name.
You can give a role access to different functions in FME Flow. Check the box beside a function to grant access.
Optionally, you can add permissions to match those from an existing role. Click Load Template. On the Load Template from Role dialog, select the role from which to load permissions, and click OK. This option adds any additional permissions that are not already granted. No permissions are removed. You can click Load Template multiple times to add permissions from more roles.
There are two levels of permissions:
- General: Allows users of the role to view the corresponding navigation link in the Web User Interface, along with select management functions, depending on the category. For example, if Access is checked beside Repositories, users can access the Repositories page. Additionally, if Create is checked, users can create repositories on the Repositories page.
- Item: Allows users of the role specific permissions on items within functional categories. To view items, click the drop-down icon of a category (v). For example, when you expand the Repositories category, you see the individual repositories on your FME Flow, along with the permissions that can be granted for each one.
