Creating roles

You can create roles for administrator accounts so that administrators in your organization can perform specific tasks and view specific information in the BlackBerry® Administration Service, BlackBerry Monitoring Service, and BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager. For example, you can create a role that has all permissions turned off by default and you can customize the role by turning on specific permissions. You can also create a role that is based on a preconfigured role and customize the role that you create.

Create a role

You can create a role for an administrator account if existing roles do not match the criteria that your organization specified for a type of administrator account. By default, when you create a role, all permissions are turned off.
  1. In the BlackBerry® Administration Service, on the BlackBerry solution management menu, expand Role.
  2. Click Create a role.
  3. Type a name and description for the role.
  4. Click Save.
  5. In the Role information section, click the name of the role that you created.
  6. Click Edit role.
  7. Switch the appropriate tabs to turn on the appropriate permissions.
  8. Click Save all.
After you finish: Assign the role to an administrator account or group.

Create a role based on an existing role

To create a role for administrator accounts that is similar to an existing role, you can copy the existing role and make the appropriate changes to it.
  1. In the BlackBerry® Administration Service, on the BlackBerry solution management menu, expand Role.
  2. Click Manage roles.
  3. In the list of existing roles, click the role that you want to copy.
