QUESTION
----------------------------------

What user roles take priority when a user has been assigned two roles in SilkCentral Test Manager? How does having two user roles effect a users privileges?

ANSWER
----------------------------------

When a user is assigned multiple user roles the permissions are essentially merged using OR logic. The user will have the privileges of both user roles.

In the table below if a user is set up with Analyst and Reporter permissions, the Analyst role doesn"t have read privileges to access the Administration or System views but the Reporter role does so the user will have read privileges.


So a User with Analyst and Reporter privileges will have the following permissions.
