Roles in FileXpress Gateway

You can assign roles to any group in the FileXpress directory. To enable users to perform tasks, assign them to a group with the required role or roles enabled.

  • To log on to Gateway Administrator, a user must have at least one of these roles enabled.
  • To view the roles assigned to a user, select the user in the Users list and click Edit. See Roles inherited from group membership at the bottom of the Edit User page.
  • The default Administrators group has all roles enabled. In addition, members of this group can view all transfer sites. Only members of this group have this privilege; all other users can view only those sites they have the right to manage.
  • The default Transfer Site Administrators group has Manage transfer sites and Manage FileXpress users enabled.
