Manage roles

To manage roles at the top right click on  Role list button.

By default the application manages users and roles in its own database.

It is also possible to connect the application to an external directory (LDAP directory for instance).

Also the login module can be extended and create your own login adapter. More information about it Creating your own login module.

When the application is connected to LDAP the manage roles view is automatically set to readonly mode. Almost all actions are disabled.

Roles are shown in a table structure.
