Roles and rights

The Roles and rights chapter in Admin Suite provides an overview of all currently configured roles and the possibility to edit or create new ones.

Clicking an existing role or the '+' icon opens up the respective create/update card.

General details

The Name and Code of the role (user-specified). For any user-created role, the General details card also features a Deactivate after field. This field lets you set an automatic deactivation of the user with this role after not logging in for a certain amount of days. If this happens, the user will be informed of the deactivation through a popup during login.


All available permissions are listed here under the functionalities card. A corresponding brief description of each permission is also provided. Here is where you can grant, limit, or manage rights based on a users role.

You can refine the list of permissions using the search field using name or category. You can also click the i icon under the Actions column to get an overview of which setting(s) are linked to that permission.


If a permission is greyed out, that means your own role does not have the necessary permission to give it to someone else.


In addition to permissions, EVA allows for elevated permissions. The fundamental essence of elevation is that you can give specific users partial permissions to conduct a task however, one that requires validation/authorization from another user with a role that has a complete permission to perform it.

You can enable this elevation per permission by double-clicking the Manage column or any other column you want to apply elevation to. An Orange sign signals that the permission requires elevation. Click Done after this to save your changes.


The Admin Suite modules are listed here, allowing you to control which modules a role can access. By default, all module access statuses are set to Inactive.
