Roles define what you can do in a given application. In Genesys Administrator Extension, roles and their privileges are controlled by the use of Role objects, which are assigned to Users (including Agents) and Access Groups. Roles are application-specific, and must be defined for each application that supports them.
In a hierarchical multi-Tenant configuration, only those Roles defined in the Environment Tenant can be used to allow Users to access all screens in Genesys Administrator Extension. Users cannot include Genesys Administrator Extension-specific privileges in Roles from other Tenants.
For more information about Roles, refer to the Genesys 8.1 Security Deployment Guide. For a listing of Role Privileges for the Genesys Administrator Extension application, refer to Role Privileges in the Genesys Administrator Extension Deployment Guide.
The Roles list shows the Roles that are in your environment. It is sorted in a hierarchy by tenants, configuration units, sites, and folders. To view objects by a particular hierarchy, select the hierarchy type in the drop-down menu above the list.
Configuration Manager respects tenancy permission settings. You can access only those objects that you have been granted permissions and privileges to access.
You can filter the contents of this list in two ways:
- Type the name or partial name of an object in the Quick Filter field.
- Click the cube icon to open the Tenant Directory filter panel. In this panel, click the Tenant that you want to select. Use the Quick Filter field in this panel to filter the Tenant list.
You can sort the items in the list by clicking a column head. Clicking a column head a second time reverses the sort order.
To select or de-select multiple objects at once, click Select.
To create a new Role object, click New. To view or edit details of an existing object, click on the name of the object, or click the check box beside an object and click Edit. To delete one or more objects, click the check box beside the object(s) in the list and click Delete. You can also delete individual objects by clicking on the object and then clicking Delete. Otherwise, click More to perform the following tasks:
- Clone—Copy a Role.
- Move To—Move a Role to another hierarchical structure.
- Enable or disable Roles.
- Create a folder, configuration unit, or site. See Object Hierarchy for more information.
