Backlot Account Management UI

We are in the process of migrating our user roles to a new authorization system. The new system will simplify access management by allowing grouping of permission into profiles corresponding to business roles.

Previous Admin Interface


The previous system design used roles which corresponded to one or more permissions or capabilities. The new design simplifies this by having Profiles which are a collection of permissions/capabilities that will phase out the old Roles gradually. While existing roles are being migrated to the new system, the UI will have support for both the new profiles and the old roles.


Updated Interface

In the new interface, the Roles / Profiles drop down will have two groups, one for roles and one for profiles. If profiles are assigned to a user, the UI will list available permissions for those profiles.

These changes will take effect on September 15, 2016.
