Org admin

Under Silo Security, users are grouped together under organizations, which typically align with real-world organizations. To ensure that organization goals are met, we created the org-admin role. These are platform members who have the ability to handle user management and address bulk import concerns for their organization.

Getting the Org-Admin Role#

To get the org-admin role, contact either a site admin or an org-admin belonging to the organization you want to help administer.

Managing Users#

Adding Users#

As an Org-Admin, you are able to create and add users to your organization. To create a new user:

  1. Navigate to Administer > User Management.
  2. Scroll to the Create/Edit User section.
  3. Enter a username, email, and password. Note that a user must have a username and password to use the account, but this requirement is changing to require an email, so it is best to provide all three values.
  4. Under Roles, select the appropriate role based on the permission level you want the user to have. This is multi-select as the roles are not hierarchical.
  • orgAdmin: grant administrative abilities to manage the organization.
  • researcher: grant ability to process and manage encounters, individuals, and sightings.
  1. Under Organization Membership, select your organization to add a user to it.
  2. Click Save.

Deleting Users#

  1. Navigate to Administer > User Management.
  2. In the filter box, type a username, first or last name, or other identifying information.
  3. Select a user from the user grid.
  4. Click Delete User beneath the user's information.

Adding Users to your Organization#

  1. Navigate to Administer > User Management.
  2. In the filter box, type a username, first or last name, or other identifying information.
  3. Select a user from the user grid.
  4. Find the Organization Membership field in the user's information.
  5. Select your organization to add a user to it.
  6. Click Save.

Addressing Bulk Import Concerns#

As an organization administrator, you are able to manage bulk imports for any user in your organization.

  1. Navigate to Administer > Bulk Import Logs.
  2. Select the desired bulk import task from the list.
  3. Scroll to the bottom. You can take any of the following actions:
  • Send to detection: Send all imported encounters to detection. This can only be done if all encounters have not been sent to detection.
  • Send to identification: Send all imported encounters to detection and identification. This can only be done if all encounters have not been sent to detection.
  • Delete ImportTask: Delete the bulk import and the related data. This can be done at any time.
