Roles in ContractManager

Home Prev Top Next

Each ContractManager user is given one or more roles. These roles define what a user is allowed and not allowed to do. For example, custom roles such as Legal or Personnel can be created that correspond to specific functions (such as access by the Personnel role to personnel-related contracts but not to client or IT contracts). A user can be associated with one or more roles, and would then be authorized to carry out the functions corresponding to those roles.


The roles that are available in ContractManager fall into three categories:



This role is predefined. It provides a user with all available ContractManager functionality. Users that have this role can:


modify the ContractManager system's users and roles

configure the ContractManager database and its components

modify ContractManager settings

configure reminder mails

enter and edit data in the system's database


All Users

This role is predefined.


Users with this role can enter and edit data in the ContractManager database. They do not have access to admin tasks (see above). If you need to perform an admin task, contact your ContractManager system administrator and request an Admin role.

The All Users role is given to all users by default. As a result, any user that can access ContractManager will be given this role and can enter data (unless otherwise restricted by custom roles).


Custom roles

ContractManager administrators can define custom roles that can be assigned to users, for example, Legal or Personnel roles.


A custom role can provide additional access or can restrict access to different containers of the database

A custom role can provide access to different functionality within containers (for example, reading rights and writing rights)
