Creating Roles & Using Permissions

All operations related to managing roles and permissions are made through /roles and /permissions pages.

These pages may be accessed by clicking on the User Management icon on RTLS Studio's Homepage.

Please note, that only rtlsadmin and users with appropriate permissions will be able to access this page.


Roles are simply sets of permissions. To give a user only some specific permissions, you have to create a role containing these permissions first.

There are three predefined roles in every RTLS Studio:

  • rtlsadmin - a role with access to everything the RTLS Studio has to offer including user management;
  • supervisor - a role with access to managing the whole system, except its users;
  • observer - a role with access to getting information from RTLS Studio, not being able to make any changes to the system whatsoever;

Adding Role

1.) Click on ADD ROLE button in Roles tab of Users Management.

2.) Select a unique name for your new role.

3.) Select as many permissions as you want for this new role.

4.) Click ADD button.
