Roles Overview

Get started now: How to Add or Manage Role user guide

The overview shows all user defined Application Roles and the result can be filtered by entering characters, edit, delete, Show Deleted, and Add or manage Role.

The Roles Overview in the Access Management main menu is where a Nodinite Administrator manages Roles.

Application Roles are used within Log Views and Monitor Views to grant business Roles access to Nodinite. There is a specific article for the 'What is a Role' topic. Make sure to read and understand the basic concepts before continuing.


In the Roles Overview you will find a sortable list of defined Roles. A large list of Roles can be narrowed down by typing characters into the filter text box.
