The FACT24 CIM roles

The FACT24 role concept allows the assigment of rights according to the responsibilities of users. With FACT24 CIM the existing 17 roles in FACT24 ENS will be extended by three new CIM roles:

  • 18. CIM Administrator
  • 19. CIM Crisis Management Team
  • 20. CIM Crisis Staff

Role administration is still possible in your FACT24 ENS account, i.e. new CIM roles are also assigned via the FACT24 ENS administration interface.

Please note our modified access authorisation for FACT24 CIM:

In future, an ENS Principal will again only have authorisation for FACT24 ENS and no longer for FACT24 CIM. This means for the access to FACT24 CIM it is necessary to to assign the corresponding CIM role(s) to the users.

If there is only one Principal, it is necessary that another user grant him the FACT24 CIM rights. Should you require assistance, please contact your F24 contact person or our customer support.

This is possible in FACT24 under: "Setup" > "Users" > "Edit Users" > "Assignment of roles". Click on "Assign" to select the relevant CIM role and assign it to the user.
