What is role management?
The role management of the RWTH Aachen University allows university institutions to manage responsibilities for online services, e.g. placing orders in the IT purchasing portal of the RWTH Aachen University, autonomously and independently of opening hours.
The role management includes the steps "authorize" and "activate". Through the authorization, a role manager of an institution enables a person to use the provided services by assigning a role to them. During this process a coupon is generated by means of which the authorized person can subsequently activate their role and become a role holder. The role holder can log in into the online service with one of their accounts (usually using the RWTH Single Sign-On account) and use their role. Additionally, the role manager can revoke the authorization with immediate effect.
Setting up Role Management
The setup for role management is always handled by Division 1.5 (Teaching), Division 2.2 (Clubs) or Division 5.1 (other institutions), who send a request via ticket to the IT-ServiceDesk. The relevant division decides on the e-mail address that will receive the first role manager coupon.
Any person who is unmistakably identifiable as organisation leadership in the RWTH Organization Directory is authorized to request coupons for new or additional role managers for their organization. This coupon will always be sent to the central e-mail address listed for the organization in the RWTH Organization Directory.
You can log in into the role management system and check all currently available roles.
