Collaborator Roles Information and Matrix

Collaborator Roles are a sum of permissions that provide particular edit rights for an automation profile to the assigned user.

In order to create a team around an automation idea that collaborates on developing the idea and pushes it through the various phases, you need to add collaborators with one or more Collaborator Roles, from the Automation Profile > Collaborators > Manage Roles & Permissions screen.

Note:

Conditions to be able to select users and assign them as collaborators in an automation idea with Project Manager, Business Analyst, Solution Architect, RPA Developer, or any other custom Collaborator Role that you define:

  • the Collaborator Role needs to be previously assigned in the user account.
  • the user needs to be granted access to the idea's Categories.
    To check or update the user account search for it in Admin Console > Manage Users > People screen and follow the steps from the Managing User Accounts page.

Details about each Collaborator Role and its designated permissions are available in the platform by accessing the Admin Console > Manage Users > User Roles > Collaborator Roles or below in this page.

By accessing the Collaborator Roles page from the platform you can also check out the two Help sections providing details about What are collaborator roles? and How do the tables work?. To dismiss them click the X icon on the top right corner. Once dismissed, the sections are not displayed anymore when the User Roles and Permissions page is accessed the next time. To see again the section click the Help icon.

Because some of the available default roles are uneditable as they are connected to the way the Automation Hub works, you have the option to add new, customized Collaborator Roles. Please check the Creating a New Collaborator Role page for more details.

Below you can check the default Collaborator Role matrix divided based on the availability of the option to Edit/Delete them:
