Application Roles

A Service Administrator can assign the appropriate application roles to users if they need to execute some functions beyond the privileges received from their predefined roles. For example, you might want to assign the ability to manage reports to another person who would not have that privilege with their predefined role.

For information on the application roles that can be assigned to other predefined roles, see Predefined Role Mapping.

The following roles apply to Account Reconciliation only.
