Role Management

The Devii Portal facilitates tenancy access by utilizing roles and role classes as part of our Security Engine. Roles can describe either one login, group together a set of logins, or both, role classes are non-hierarchical "mixins" that can be added to roles, to modify their access. Specific rules/access for roles and role classes are defined in policy rules section.

To access Devii role management click on the role manangement button on the left side of the portal.

When entering the role management function for the first time your Portal screen will look like this with your Devii Root role with no role class. Notice that your login/username will be same for both Devii Portal role or Devii Root role, the passwords for each should be different, instuctions on how to change the password will be contained in this document.
