Role security is where user roles are configured and corresponding user permissions for those roles are defined. Form and field blinding is also done in this section.


Please read the Study Permissions Guide for the list of all permissions and their definitions.


Open the Study Configuration page and select the Role Security tab.





The image below annotates all the functions in Role Security. See the list below the image for descriptions.
