|Summary: this page describes how to grant/revoke existing roles to your users and groups.|
A user with the ADMIN or SUPER ADMIN role is required.
The Users panel enables you to grant/revoke existing roles to your users and groups:
When clicked, a list of existing users/groups and their assigned roles is displayed:
Chose the role or roles you require using the drop down list (you can create new roles in the Roles panel). When assigning multiple roles, the role with the most permissive behaviour will override other roles.
If an authentication mode other than "local" is active and the user/group has never been granted a permission, the user/group will not be visible in the list. Therefore, to find the user/group:
You will need to search for the user/group because it will not be displayed in the table:
Using Active Directory/SAML
In these modes, the search mechanism is not available, instead, you will need to specifically use the Add user/group icon to add a user or group with an identical name to the user or group you want to grant the role or permission to:
Note that when using SAML authentication, you MUST ensure that the login/user name that you add exactly matches the login/username in the SAML directory. For example if the login uses a mixture of upper and lowercase characters, ensure that these are also used in CAST Imaging.
To allow users/groups to use the Tutorial feature, you will need to grant the permission on a user or group basis. Select the user/group you want to grant these permissions to (1), and then click the icon highlighted in the top right (2):
Then enable the required permission and click Update:
The changes will be saved automatically.
If you need to edit existing roles for a user/group, you can use the dropdown list to change the role that has been assigned:
To delete all roles/permissions that have been granted to a user or group already, use the delete icon on the selected users/groups:
You will be prompted to confirm the choice:
The user or group will now have no roles or permissions assigned to it.
