User Roles


In Plutora User Permissions are assigned to User Roles. Users receive permissions when they are assigned the respective User Role. 

If permission is toggled off for a User Role, the buttons, links, and tabs associated with that permission become read-only, missing, or grayed out for the users with that role.

User Roles with  are part of Plutora’s system and can be edited but not deleted. They are:

  • Non-Registered Users: This role is assigned to non-registered Users accessing PIR Item secure URLs (from emails created by the Email Template Wizard). This role only contains user permissions for PIR Item Impacts, Actions, Root Causes, and Preventative Measures.
  • Super Admin: The Administrator role. This role has all the user permissions.
  • Technology Manager: The next role below Super Admin.
  • SSO Requestor: This role is automatically assigned to new SSO users.
