Altova Contract Manager

Each Contract Manager 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 Contract Manager fall into three categories:



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


modify the Contract Manager system's users and roles

configure the Contract Manager database and its components

modify Contract Manager 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 Contract Manager database. They do not have access to admin tasks (see above). If you need to perform an admin task, contact your Contract Manager 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 Contract Manager will be given this role and can enter data (unless otherwise restricted by custom roles).


Custom roles

Contract Manager 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)
