Roles User Guide
The Tehama platform currently defines three roles: Admin, Manager, and Staff Member.
General Role Information
This section explains what the various roles can do with respect to their own organization.
The following table provides a brief overview of the three roles in Tehama:
|Has full access||Have full access except for billing/invoicing||Can access Rooms they've been added to and approved to access|
|Has full management capabilities||Are able to manage their own organization and add, edit, remove teams, team members and policies but cannot delete the organization||Can edit their own profile, and can access Rooms they've been added to and approved to access|
|Receives all approval notifications for Rooms and Room membership|
Note that there is only one Admin per organization, known as the 'organization owner', but the Admin can transfer their role to another member of their organization by selecting another member and making them an Admin.
Roles and their permissions vis-a-vis Room management
This section is a bit more complicated and applies to both Managers/Admins. For the purpose of this section consider Manager to mean Manager/Admin.
Note that people with the Staff role have no permissions with respect to Room management.
The roles and permissions of Managers change for Rooms depending on whether their organization is:
- Owner+Connected: Their organization created the Room (i.e.: they are paying for it) and connected it (i.e.: they configured the network access for the Room).
- User-only: Their organization has been added to a Room that another organization is paying for and has connected.
- User+Owner: They've created and are paying for a Room but it's connected to another organization.
- Connected-only: They've connected the Room that another organization is paying for.
The following table outlines the roles and the permissions associated with Room management:
|Full control/approval of membership and policies||Can propose team members for membership to Room||Can propose team members for membership to Room||Full control/approval of membership and policies|
|Full control/approval of tools/tool configurations.||Can request new tools/tool configurations that will be approved by the Owner/Connected organization.||Can add new tools/tool configurations||Do not control tool configurations but set policies|

Note that when referring to the 'connected organization' in a Room, this means either an 'owner+connected' organization or a 'connected-only' organization, depending on the Room configuration. Similarly, when referring to the 'owner organization' in a Room, this means either an 'owner+connected' organization or a 'user+owner' organization.
