The Administrator role can perform all functions in the Admin Portal, and can connect to Apperian through the API.
The User role is the most limited of all the roles. Users can use the Admin Portal only for modifying their account profile, which includes setting a new password. Typically, the User role is assigned to users who will log in to Apperian through the App Catalog only—not the Portal. If a user is auto-provisioned through Single Sign-On (SSO), they are assigned the User role by default. For more information on SSO, see Single Sign-On with Apperian.
The purpose of the User Manager role is to create and manage the users and groups of an organization. User Managers have permissions to add new users, assign roles and groups, reset their passwords, and delete them from Apperian. They can also generate and view all reports.
The User Manager can assign the roles of User, User Manager, and Developer to other users. Only Administrators can create or edit other Administrators.
Limited User Manager
The purpose of the Limited User Manager role is to create and manage users only in groups that the user is a member of. Limited User Managers have permissions to add new users, assign roles and groups, reset their passwords, and delete them from Apperian.
When a Limited User Manager creates a new user, you must assign that new user to at least one group. Otherwise the new user will not be created.
The Limited User Manager can only assign the role of User to other users.
The purpose of the App Manager role is to add, secure, and manage all of the applications of an organization (including App Catalogs). App Managers have permissions to add new apps, edit apps, delete apps, apply policies to apps, and sign apps. They can also set the policy defaults of an organization, inspect applications, create and manage categories, view groups, and view and export crash logs.
The purpose of the Developer role is to add, secure, and manage applications only in groups that the user is a member of. Developers have permissions to add new apps, edit apps, delete apps, apply policies to apps, inspect apps, sign apps, and view analytics and crash report logs. When adding an app, a Developer can't assign the app to a group he is not a member of. Also, Developers can't add or modify App Catalogs.
