Manifest Roles and Permissions

User Guides / Basics / Manifest Roles and Permissions

Overview

So you’ve been provisioned as a Manifest user, assigned your role(s) – and are now wondering, ‘what should I be able to do and see?’. We’ve summarized a high-level overview of each role below. Users can and should be assigned multiple user roles if they need the respective access available to various role types.

Security Adminthis role is responsible for user management: creating users, assigning roles/permissions, and overseeing license allocation. Security Admin is the only user with permission to add, delete, deactivate users, reset passwords, or require two-factor authentication. The Security Admin role also contains direct access to data logs to evaluate or audit domain activity.
Adminthis role’s access is primarily via the browser application with permissions to configure domain settings and create domain entities such as locations, asset classes, and assets. Using the Client Portal, the Admin role has access to view status of work, work history, and general reporting. Users with “Admin” role only, have very limited access to views and features on the 3D or Mobile applications. It is also the Admins responsibility to agree to the Master Service Agreement once the domain is provisioned.
Authorthis role has the access to create entities such as locations, asset classes, and assets; upload and edit 3D models; and to create and edit templates. Users responsible for authoring job templates must be assigned the Author role.
Operatorthis role has the access to create, perform, and review work in Manifest. Users responsible for operating work (jobs and tasks) guided by Manifest or reviewing and resolving ‘faults’ must be assigned the Operator role.
Viewerthis role has ‘view only’ access to view all domain data (assets, location, work, etc.), preview templates on device applications, and access general reports.
If you have questions about your role assignment and need to request additional access, this should be directed to your domain’s Security Admin.

* All roles include access to Connect via the browser, client applications, or both.
* Viewer is automatically included for Authors and Operators so there is no need to assign ‘Viewer’ to users with either of those roles.
