Understanding the Administrator role

The administrative groups grant permission to the users for accessing the application data. See Understanding permissions

There are two types of administrators:

  • System administrators: Can manage only a subset of the data in the Expense Management application.
  • Super administrator: Can manage all the data in the Expense Management application.

System administrators

Add or remove users from a group is possible only if the administrator can access the group. The administrator can view or modify data such as the user information, corporate data, and business rules related to the groups based on the permissions provided.

A system administrator with full permission can:

  • Add or remove users.
  • Activate and reactivate users.
  • Add or modify data corporate data.
  • Add or modify business rules.
  • Override application parameters.
  • Start a server but cannot stop it. Only a super administrator can stop a server.
  • View all administrative logs.

Super administrator

The authorizations provided to a super administrator are more than that of a system administrator. Only one user is assigned with the super Administrator role. The super administrator can perform all the actions available in the Expense Management SAT application, without any restrictions.

A super administrator can:

  • Add or remove users from any or all groups.
  • Deactivate or reactivate users from any groups, irrespective of membership.
  • Add or modify all the data for groups, including the corporate data and the business rules. Add or modify data that has not been specified for a group.
