Publishing Management Roles to the IT Shop

By default, EmpowerID hides Management Roles from the IT Shop, disallowing people from requesting membership in those roles. This gives Management Role owners and other administrators greater control over Management Role access. To override this and make Management Roles available in the IT Shop, you need to set the Allow Join Requests flag to true for each Management Role you want to appear in the IT Shop.

This topic demonstrates how to publish Management Roles to the IT Shop and is divided into the following activities:

To publish a Management Role to the IT Shop

  1. From the Navigation Sidebar, navigate to the Management Role management page by expanding Identities and clicking Management Roles.
  2. Search for the Management Role you want to assign and then click the record for that role to display a list of contextual actions that can be executed against it.
  3. In the following image, the Locations pane has been collapsed to conserve screen real estate.

  4. Click the Edit action link.
  5. This directs you to the Edit page for the Management Role.

  6. From the Edit page, tick Allow Access Requests so that the option is selected and click Save.
