Editing User Roles

Geographic Editors and Administrators can edit user roles. A User Role might need to be edited for the following reasons:

NOTE: Administrators must verify that non-federal GAE users have completed security training before granting them roles.

Geographic Editors can only grant the following user roles: Viewer, Dispatcher, Author, Fire Behavior Specialist and Data Manager. They can also Disable Users. Administrators can grant all user roles.

A user's roles can be different for Production and Training. Roles granted to a user in Production will automatically be granted to the user's Training profile. Conversely, roles granted to a user in Training are not mirrored to Production.

To edit user roles:

  1. Choose the Administration tab, then do one of the following:
    • Choose User List. The User List table displays all users in the system for whom you are allowed to edit privileges.
    • Click Show Role Request. The User List table updates to display only the user role requests available to you.

      Note: If you use Show Role Request, you will only be using a list of users who have requested roles.

  2. Use the User List Filter to locate the user you want to edit.
  3. Select the user, then click Edit User. The Edit User Role page appears.
  4. Select the appropriate User Roles for the user.
  5. Click Save.

The next time the selected user logs into WFDSS, their role is changed.
