Note

For Account Administrators only.

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), roles are similar to job titles that you can create and assign to your users. You can populate these roles with certain permissions. For example, you can create an Audit role, and then you can add specific permissions that will give the assigned user permission to access audit-related features.

By default, a new administrator account contains an Admin role with all the available permissions selected. 

When you create a new user account, you must assign that user a role. You can assign a default role or create a new role. 

Note

There are three default permissions in AMP: 

  • Admin contains every permission in AMP.
  • Technical contains mostly write-only permissions. 
  • Billing contains mostly read-only permissions.

If you want to use a default role, then you can skip to Step 8: Create a user and assign a role
