Roles and Permissions in QPR ProcessAnalyzer

From QPR ProcessAnalyzer Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

QPR ProcessAnalyzer has a role-based access control, where all operations require appropriate rights in order to be executable. Rights are given to users and groups by assigning roles to them. Roles are a collection of permissions. Permissions are fixed in QPR ProcessAnalyzer allowing certain operations to be done. Some roles are project-specific meaning that that role (and its permissions) is applicable only for that project. Roles can also be global which gives rights to all projects in the system. Users belonging to a group, have all the roles assigned to that group.

Global and Project Roles

There are two types of roles in QPR ProcessAnalyzer:

  • Global roles are used to give rights in the entire QPR ProcessAnalyzer system.
  • Project roles are used to give rights in a certain project. When assigning projects roles, the project is also defined.

By default, QPR ProcessAnalyzer system contains global and project roles that are shown in the following table (roles are as columns). The roles have been mapped to certain permissions that are also shown in the following table (permissions are as rows). It's possible to create new roles in QPR ProcessAnalyzer.

Global roles Project roles
Permission Allowed operations Administrator Create models SQL Scripting Administrator Designer Analyzer Viewer
View dashboards
(GenericRead)
  • View project's and model's information (name, description, configuration etc.)
  • List datatables and view their contents
  • Open dashboards (queries made by the dashboards are still restricted by the permissions)
  • Run analyses for model and view the analysis results
  • See own private filters, all published filters and the model default filter (not allowed to create/modify/delete filters)

Manage filters
(ManageViews)
  • View, create, modify and delete all filters in the model (also other users' private filters).
  • Set the model default filter.

Manage project
(ManageProject)
  • Modify project information (name and description) (also GenericRead permission is needed)

Delete models
(DeleteModel)

As a project specific permission:

  • Moving model to recycle bin (soft deleting) (also project specific ManageProject permission is needed)
  • Delete datatables (for datatables deletion is always permanent)

As a global permission:

  • Permanently deleting models and projects (remove from the recycle bin) (also global ManageProject permission is needed)

Manage scrips
(ManageScripts)
  • As a project role, create, modify and delete scripts in project and model context.
  • As a global role, create, modify and delete all scripts.

This permission to be effective requires also the RunScript permission.

SQL scripting
(RunScripts)
  • View scripts code and other script properties (with additional restrictions listed below)
  • Run scripts (with additional restrictions listed below)
  • Create, modify and delete scripts that are in user's own context.

The rights depend also in which of the following contexts the script is located:

  • project: To view scripts that are in project or model context, user needs to have the GenericRead for the project.
  • user: Only the user itself can view, create, modify and delete scripts that are in the user's own context (except users with global ManageScripts permission can see scripts in other users' context).
  • system: All users with RunScripts can see scripts in the system context.
