Managing Administrators

The System User account that ships with the application should only be used for the initial setup. Administrators have full control over the Lifecycle application and can access all settings and features, so careful consideration should be taken when assigning the Administrator user role.

Creating the Administrator Role


  • Within the integrated SSO service, be sure that all users that you intend to mark as administrators within Non-Employee Risk Management have a unique group or entitlement in common on that SSO service. This allows them to be given the administrator user role automatically upon signing in. For example, you might choose to name this group Lifecycle Admins.

Within the Lifecycle product:

  1. Begin creating a new role as described in Managing User Roles.

    Be sure to use a descriptive name to indicate that this is an administrator role. Select the group you created in your SSO system to denote Non-Employee admins in the Directory groups field.

    Once linked, each time a user logs in, Lifecycle receives a list of the user’s entitlements from the single sign-on service provider. If any of the entitlements match directory groups for a given role the user will be assigned that role within Lifecycle. If the user’s entitlements do not match any roles they will be unable to log in to the application.

  2. In the PERMISSIONS section, under the Application header, select the Yes checkbox beside admin.

    This grants users with this role access to the admin console.

    Review the rest of the permissions available for this role and grant them as appropriate.

  3. Select the Create button.
