Administrators can limit the types of incidents that a user can view and/or edit. When limiting a user's access be mindful of the roles you've configured to be able to edit and be notified at each incident flow step. To modify permission, you can either create a custom user role or edit an already existing role. For more details on creating custom roles, see the article Creating Custom Roles.
How to Configure Incident Type Permissions
- Once you login to Connect, click on cogwheel in the top right corner. Select "User Management" within the Settings menu.
- Click the Roles tab.
- Next, either select the next to an existing role or select the button.
- Incident permissions are located within the Quality Management Tools permission set. By default each user with this setting checked with view/edit permissions has access to all incident types.
- Click into the "All Incident Types" box to view available types. Select all that apply to this user role. Once complete, click "Save" at the bottom of the page. Note: You also have the ability to restrict visible history, visit our Limiting Historical Views article for further details.
