Xton Access Manager provides a robust set of permissions that can be granted to users or groups (Principals) in order to control the level of access they have to objects and areas of the software.

Note that permissions in XTAM are additive, meaning that a higher level of permission includes all the roles of a lesser, and permissions can be inherited via folders.

Below is a list of available permissions and roles in XTAM.

Global Roles

Global Roles provide system wide access to XTAM.

  • Auditor
    • The Auditor role grants a limited “View Only” role to all folders and records in the system. It grants access to the Audit Log (record and system), Session History (record and system), Job History (record and system) as well as Administration Reports. For additional information, please see What is the Auditor Role.
  • System Administrator
    • The System Administrator role (the highest level available) grants full access to all folders, records, logs, security, script library, workflows, configuration and reports system wide. It can be used to grant and revoke other principals to this System Administrator role and therefore it should only be given to trusted users.
  • Split View
    • The Split View roles grants access to only the first or last part of a split password when the Split View Role is enabled. The Split View Role is configured in the Parameters section of the Administration page. What is Split View?
  • Service
    • The Service account is used for a distributed job engine deployment so an Administrator can designate certain records to be executed by specific job engine nodes. Read more about Distributed Job Engine Deployments.
