We've made a number of changes to roles and user groups as part of an ongoing initiative to clarify and streamline permissions in Fiix v6.
In this release:
- Roles renamed as System roles.
- System role selection now optional.
- New default System roles added.
- All System roles now deletable.
- Some customer System roles have been migrated to User groups.
Roles renamed as System roles
As part of the ongoing effort to streamline and clarify permissions in Fiix, we've renamed Roles to System roles. Permissions that live under System roles relate to users' ability to make changes to Fiix overall (affecting the system) and are not location- or site-specific. Currently, only User Management permissions are housed under System roles, with the intent of broadening these in the future.
System role selection now optional
It is no longer mandatory for users to be assigned a System role.
New default System roles added
The new default System roles are System coordinator and Read-only.
System coordinator allows users assigned this role to make changes throughout the system, similar to an Administrator. This role is best suited for users who need broad permissions to make changes but are not the system Administrator.
Read-only gives users assigned this role broad visibility but removes the ability to make changes. They can see changes made in the app but can't make changes themselves. This role is best suited for users who want to see most things in the CMMS but should not have access to make changes in the app.
All System roles now deletable
All System roles, including the default System coordinator and Read-only System roles, are now deletable. To delete a System role, see Edit System roles.
Some customer System roles have been migrated to User groups
As part of the changes to User group and System role permissions, some customer System role permissions are now User group permissions. To avoid affecting any users, we've migrated these customer System roles to User groups. These new groups retain their previous names with an explanatory tag.
Ex. The customer's role "Equipment Managers" will be moved to User groups and renamed "Equipment Managers (Migrated from roles)". Their permissions remain the same.
This change only affects a small percentage of Fiix customers. It should not affect what these users are able to access in the app. If you experience any issues, please contact our Support team.
