In most situations, a user is associated with an organisation and has exactly one of five default roles within the organisation. The five default roles are cumulative, i.e. a Theme Manager can do everything a Data Manager can do:
The structure of organisations is hierarchical. Each organisational structure has a root organisation, such as in this example:
Usually, a user has exactly one role inside an organisation. The user gets access to resources and functions of the system via privileges defined for the role. Some privileges depend on the hierarchical structure of the organisations of the logged in user and the owner of a resource.
Example: You belong to «County A1» with role «Superuser». As a «Superuser», you can see the data sets belonging to your organisation «County A1», and the data sets belonging to any suborganisations associated with your root organisation. You can create new user accounts and suborganisations for your organisation, or for any of its suborganisations. You can create as many levels of suborganisations as you need.
||When you create a new user as an administrator, the system enforces association of the user with an organisation and a role.|
