Role-Based Access Control

This page describes how you can implement the role-based access in the Context Services.


Through Configuration Manager or Genesys Administrator, you can define roles for your application built on top of the Context Services. To do this, you assign one or more roles to your users when creating your application's configuration in the Context Services. You are responsible for creating and defining these roles, where each role is a collection of Genesys Administrator Tasks associated with permissions.

Rights for Context Services

Tasks related to Service management are available in GMS and may require specific permission set up in Genesys Administrator.

Starting 8.5.0, privileges are simplified.

Name Description
Administrator Specifies write access to all CS APIs.
Supervisor Specifies read access to all CS APIs.

The following table details the relationship between requests and privileges.

Privileges required per API operations:
HTTP Operation Required Permissions
PUT Administrator
POST Administrator
GET Administrator or Supervisor
DELETE Administrator

Genesys Administrator Tasks for Customer Profiles in UCS

Tasks related to Customer management are available in UCS and require specific permission set up in Genesys Administrator.


Once authenticated, if the use-role option is set to true in the configuration (see the options defined in [authentication] Section) then the Universal Contact Server checks that each operation is allowed. If not, Error 403 forbidden is returned.



Mapping Genesys Administrator Task with Context Services

Operations can require that one or more Genesys Administrator Tasks are allowed, according to the type of data that the request modifies. If your application's role does not allow all of the rights required for a given operation, then the operation does not proceed.

For example, consider that your application performs a Create Customer Profile operation with extensions. If your application's role allows UCS.Customer.createProfile but not UCS.Customer.createProfileExtension then the profile is not created. Your application instead receives a HTTP 403 Forbidden error.
