Environment

Resolution

       Compensation Module, Compensation Administration 2.0, Variable Pay, Role Base permissions

 

  • There are three typical kinds of admins for each customer instance:
  1. The Super Administrator (sometimes referred to as Super User) can grant other users the right to manage Role-Based Permissions. See Creating a Super Administrator and Assigning Permissions.
     
  2. A Security Admin is responsible for managing security through roles and permission groups in the role-based permissions.
     
  3. An Admin is any user with access to the Administration Tools.

 

  • Note: The RBP concept assumes that there are just a few users with access to managing role-based permissions per company. You typically really want to keep the number of people able to maintain RBP as limited as possible as there should be no need to update RBP frequently.

  • Note: Only Super Admins get to see the Manage Role-Based Permission Access link when they log in. Security Admins who are not Super Admins cannot see this link.
     
  1. Select Add User.

 

  1. Search for and select the employee(s) you'd like to grant permission to.
