System Config

Roles and Permissions

OPS-COM allows System Owners and Administrators the ability to setup roles that will restrict access to information and features in OPS-COM. Roles are a group of permissions that are bundled and assigned to a set of users. For example, you may wish to create a role for Patrol Officer. You will set the permissions for this role and assign users the role of Patrol Officer when you would like to grant them permissions that match that job. Users can be assigned multiple roles.

Creating Administrator Accounts

When the system is setup for the first time there will only be one Administrator. The OPS-COM team will have set it up and provided the login details to you. To manage your Admin Accounts you must refer to this wiki article.

Setting Up UserTypes

Your Account Executive will help you determine what user types may be useful for you to setup and what the rules appropriate to those users may be. For example, you may want to allow Full-Time Students to park in different lots than Part-Time students. User Types will lay the groundwork for you to do this.  Once you have decided what types you will be using, you can use this wiki article to set them up.  

You will also need to decide what information you will require when a new user creates a profile on your system. Refer to this wiki article for setup information.

Setting up the Admin Options
