3 - List

Users can have one of the following user profiles associated with their account:

3.1 - WebUser

A WebUser is the most basic user profile in Axon. WebUsers have permission to view content. An administrator can provide advanced permissions to a WebUser on a facet by assigning a role. SuperAdmin users can adjust the permissions applicable to a role. Any user with the Edit privileges for an object can assign roles to WebUsers. The WebUser then becomes a stakeholder for the facet and can perform other tasks to create or manage content for the facet. Stakeholder roles can provide Create permissions for a facet and Edit permissions for individual objects. For example, a WebUser with the relevant role and permission can bulk upload data to Axon. A WebUser with the New permission can access the Enterprise Catalog tab from the Axon toolbar.
