Granting User Role Requests

Geographic Editors and Administrators can grant user roles. Users are usually granted the Viewer role when they request access to the application. If users are not federal employees, they are not automatically granted Viewer role. Administrators must confirm that non-federal users that require GAE roles or higher have completed security training. The users are required to request user roles that allow them to complete their assigned tasks, for example:

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.

Roles granted to a user in Production are mirrored to Training. Conversely, roles granted to a user in Training are not mirrored to Production.

To grant 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.
