I would need to create such security group where the member can have access to reporting only. I though I can create new Role, but so far I see nothing to set in a Role. Can someone explain what is the purpose of creating new role?
I understand that security groups should be created and the permissions are assigned to the group via adding roles, right? I can use the existing roles, an create new ones. But I do not see how to define the roles' permissions. E.g. I would need a reporting role, where the user can access the reports only - cannot send any emails, cannot change anything. There is the list of authorization page about what permissions are assigned to the ootb roles. When I am adding a new role, I would expect to configure it the same way - e.g specify if he can modify / delete / create workflow, campaign, Etc.
So far I do not see the benefit of creating new role.
Please help me how I can have such read-only reporting user role.
"Users must always be linked to a security group. This will allow you to assign them specific roles, organizational and geographical units." Follow the instructions given here and you will be able to fix this.
