Concept of Use#

This chapter provides general information on the use of ADONIS NP.

Types of Roles#

System Roles

System Roles are created in the Administration Toolkit and assigned to users.

  • System Roles grant access to ADONIS NP web client features and to the available metamodel elements (= metamodel rights)

  • A special case of system roles are release workflow roles.

Roles

Roles (business roles) are objects that are created in the ADONIS NP web client.

  • Roles are referenced in the Notebooks of models and objects (e.g. RACI responsibilities in the Tasks in Business Process Diagrams).

  • There are personalized reading views in ADONIS NP. To use these views, Roles can be assigned to a user (Activate Assignment of Roles by Readers).

Trusted Login#

This setting is only relevant in certain web client scenarios. It enables simple and quick access to ADONIS NP via single sign-on (SSO).

Trusted login means that a user for whom this right is set can perform actions without having to enter a user name and password.

Trusted login is a prerequisite for:

  • users who are authenticated outside of ADONIS NP (Web Client Login with LDAP Coupling, IDM, SAML)

  • technical users which are used for special scenarios (e.g. for synchronizing objects between ADONIS NP and another BOC Management Office product)

  • users who are used to access the Organisation Portal anonymously

If a user is in a user group that has this right, the user inherits this right.
