The Control Room enforces role-based access control. There are two types of roles: system and user-created.
Role-based access control (RBAC) gives users access to specific features, based on the assigned roles and the accessibility provided to the user. The benefits of creating roles include:
- Increased security through controlling users access according to their specified roles.
- Decreased need of customer support.
- Easy and accurate monitoring of the use and access of data by higher management, leading to better research management.
- System roles
- These roles are preconfigured with the permissions necessary to perform the tasks within the scope of that role. They cannot be modified or deleted.
- User-created roles
- Users create these roles and the roles can be customized. If a user-created role is created with all Control Room permissions, it is not considered a Control Room Admin role. Only the system-created AAE_Admin role has this privilege.
