Issues Module: Creating & Managing Account Roles & Permissions

With the new Issues module comes a new way to assign specific permissions within the main sections of the module.

To configure these Roles/Permissions, you will log into your ZenQMS account and click on the mceclip0.png to access the Issues setting from the dashboard. On the left side of the screen, you will choose the "Account Roles/Permissions" option.


Create a Role

1. Click on the  mceclip2.png , a window will slide from the right. You will be asked to create a name for the role and a brief description.

2. Choose the issues functions for each role:  

  • Account Custom Fields - allows user to create new account custom fields and manage existing
  • Account Modules - allows users to turn on and off account wide visibility for modules
  • Account Roles/Permissions - allows users to create new roles and manage existing roles and the permissions given
  • Configuration: Issues - users with this permission will be able to view Issue categories. Only users under the Administration: Account Super User role can create new categories

3. After you have created the role and configured the permissions, you can add users to that role by clicking on the blue hyperlinked number in the "Users" column of the Account Roles/Permissions table.


A window will appear to the right where you will be able to choose users from a dropdown and add them to that Role.


Edit Existing Roles/Permissions

To edit an existing Role/Permissions, click on the blue hyperlinked "Name" of the Role. The window will slide from the right. From this view, you will be able to do the following:

  • Change the name and the description of the role
  • Add or remove a permission by checking or unchecking the box to the left of each permission
  • Delete the role by clicking on the red trash can

To add or remove users, click on the blue hyperlinked number in the users column and add users from the drop-down or remove them by clicking on the red trash can.
