Using the Groups Permission Browser Page

As a Vocera user, you can quickly see the groups to which you belong and the permissions granted to you for each group.

To use this function, you must have system administrator privileges for the group. If you log in and do not see any groups or permissions listed, you do not have the correct permissions. Contact your Vocera system Administrator.

The Permission Browser displays the permissions you are granted and those revoked for the groups to which you belong. You can also use the Permission Browser to additional permissions and manage permissions for other users in your groups.

To browse the permissions for a user or group:

  1. Log into the Vocera User Console as a user with system administration privileges.
  2. Click Groups in the left navigation bar.
  3. Select the Permission Browser tab to display the Permission Browser page.
  4. Under the Membership Hierarchy Browser list, click Add Name to display the Select User Or Group dialog box.
  5. Select a user, group, or site you want to modify, and then click Finish.
  6. You may add as many users and groups as you want to see in the Membership hierarchy Browser.
  7. When you select a group, site, or user from the list, the current permissions for that group, site, or user are shown in the Permissions panel.
  8. Use the buttons adjacent to the Permissions panel to Grant or Revoke permissions, and Clear to reset all permissions and start over.
  9. Be sure to save any changes you make before leaving the Permissions Browser.
  10. Log out and log back in for permission changes to take effect.
