The Role document allows you to create a new KIM role and edit an existing role. Each role aggregates a specific set of permissions and responsibilities and allows you to assign members to the role. KFS contains many existing roles that your institution may want to use as is, but you may also change existing roles and add new ones by using the Role document.
The purpose of each role is defined by its associated permissions and responsibilities. Roles are classified by types that generally indicate the type of permissions and responsibilities with which they can be associated.
Note: The process of creating a new type requires technical assistance. Consequently, KIM does not provide an interface for creating role types.
