Role Based Access Controls (RBAC)

Role-Based Access Controls (RBAC)

Role-based access controls (RBAC) allow Osano administrators to restrict application access based on a person's role within the application. The roles in RBAC refer to the levels of access that employees have to the Osano application.

User access takes into consideration a multitude of factors, including authority, responsibility, and job function. Access can also be limited to specific product features and provide the ability to view, create, or modify those features. This control allows users to focus on relevant tasks while restricting access to features and tasks outside their access level.

Osano user roles can be used in conjunction with organizations to allow for greater granularity across and within Osano features.
