Introduction

SIS access and user roles


There are a number of user roles on SIS, with varying access rights. There are no restrictions on the number of roles a user can have. You must have at least one member of staff with the SIS User Administrator role who can set up other users.

If you are the SIS User Administrator and are setting up a new user on the HE Gateway, you will first need to assign them the HEI User role. This will give them access to the system. You can then assign any number of other roles.
