What is the 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 the Role Management or Regaining Access
The management of an organization listed in the directory of organizations at RWTH Aachen University are authorized to set up the role management service for their organization.
Access to the role management is given via the role "Verwaltung Rollen". When the role management is set up anew or in the case that nobody in your organization is holding this role, a corresponding coupon is created and sent to the main address for your organization as recorded in the directory of organizations.
You can log in into the role management system and check all the roles available at the moment.
