Copy a role

To create a new role that has similar properties as an existing role, you can use the existing role as a template for the new role. You can select a predefined or custom role as a template.

Prerequisite: You can only use existing roles as templates, if the currently authenticated security officer has all the rights contained in the specific role template. So, this function may be disabled for officers with a limited set of actions.

  1. In the SafeGuard Management Center, select Security Officers.
  2. In the navigation window, right-click the role you want to copy and select New > New copy of role. In New custom role, all properties of the existing role are already preselected.
  3. Enter a new name for this role and change the properties as required.
  4. Click the Save icon in the toolbar to save your changes to the database.

The new role is created.
