Roles definition: Difference of update and admin permission

Jump to solution

Within the roles definition, you can check/uncheck permissions for a specific record type.

 

docs.microfocus.com says:

Update "Enables you to update records of the selected record type in the grid." while

Admin "Enables you to update the selected record type in the records module."

 

I have no clear understanding what this will mean for e.g. Incidents, Service Requests.

Question is: What's the difference between Admin and Update permission, e.g. in Incident Module? What can I do with Admin permission in addition to Update

Hi Brindusa,

then please update the help / help server (e.g. mark the area), so that it reflects your statement.

We had internal discussion about that permission but never thought it is not used at all.

I have been using the Admin right in order to control customer-specific process rights.

E.g. some privileged field will be set to read-only unless the expression:

${current_user.IsPermitted('EMS-AdminTemplate(entityType='Request)')}

is true (here using the Request entity as an example)

That way, you can create a specific role with Admin rights on an entity, and setup the process to control access to some functionality (fields or manual transitions) only for those users with that role.

I know that this can also be done by testing on the role itself, but I always found this method based on a specific right more flexible.
