Creating new user role profiles

Click here for the Administrative features tutorial video.

QL on-premise administrators can modify existing user roles, and create their own at their discretion. 

QL cloud administrators can only create new user roles. They cannot edit the default user roles.

To access the user roles screen, select Main Menu > Domain and User Management.

The User Role Profile page is the second page you access by clicking the right arrow:

Domain and User Management > Role Profile

Click the right arrow to switch to the second page.

The second screen lets administrators create new roles, and delete or edit existing roles.

QL on-premise comes with a default set of roles for various types of users.  

You can use these roles as-is, modify them to suit your needs or create entirely new roles.

QL cloud also comes with a default set of roles, but you can't modify these roles. 

You can create your own custom user roles instead.

  • To create a new role, click the options icon right of the pull-down menu and select Create Profile.
  • To delete the currently selected role on the left, click the options icon and select Delete Profile.

Clicking the pull-down menu's down-arrow to select an existing role. Once a role has been selected, you will see it's options so you can edit them.
