LogMeOnce Enterprise Edition provides creation of custom roles and granular access permissions, and enables a user to perform a specific action, or access a feature.
LogMeOnce role based administration feature comes preconfigured with administrator's roles to simplify administration of your organizational policies. Each role is a combination of granular permissions or entitlement. Please see table at the end of this article with details about permissions and resources. The preconfigured administrator roles are;
- Super Administrator
This administrator role has "full" access to all roles, permissions, and policies. Super Administrator can manage security policies for the entire organization.

Custom roles and permissions types
Permissions are used to grant system privileges. This allows you to build organizational-specific roles to match your requirements and restrict system administrators from accessing user data. Additionally, LogMeOnce enables you to create granular level permissions.
LogMeOnce granular permissions enable you to set the least privilege policy which requires all administrators should be granted as few privileges as possible in order to do their job while enforcing separation of duties. LogMeOnce supports the following permissions types. All permission types are not relevant for all resources.
|Permission Types||Permission Type Description|
