Understanding roles for users
During registration the administrator is automatically linked to the username and login entered. They are responsible for account set-up /configuration and management.
The administrator is the primary point of contact for users with questions or problems and creates roles for the account.
The user can have different roles, which correspond to the user’s actual job responsibilities. They are responsible for updating user information.
