Roles define which menus each person logged into the web interface may see. A set of roles such as "System owner", "Reseller", "Administrator", and "User" are pre-defined. You may change these or add new roles for specific purposes.

To add a new role

  1. Log in to the Enswitch web interface.
  2. Go to System » Roles.
  3. Click the "New" button.
  4. Fill in the following:
    • A name for the role.
    • Optionally a description.
    • Whether the person may log into the web interface and JSON API.
    • If they may log into the web interface, what user interface they see.
    • Whether they are an administrator and may make new features within their own customer.
    • Which menus they may view.
    • What this role is the default for. Enabling any of these settings disables them for all other roles.
