background: access to records: user roles - general
A user role reflects a particular job, and determines which functions an individual canaccess to carry out that job. Each office will be allocated those user roles, and the functions associated with those roles, that are needed. Local management will allocate user roles to individual operators.
Operators may be allocated more than one user role.
The Student Loans Service (SLS) has two user roles
- SLS Maintenance. This is the update role. It allows access to all SLS functions. For more information about this role see CSLM4015
- SLS View. This role allows access to some, but not all, SLS functions. It allows you to view but not update the stored information. For more information about this role see CSLM4020
