In SmarterWX, access to functionality is controlled by defining a role hierarchy. A role hierarchy represents a level of access that a user or group of users require. Users assigned to roles near the top of the hierarchy (Administrators and Publishers) have access to the functions of all the users who fall directly below them in the hierarchy.

User Roles


The functions of each user are outlined below:

  • Administrator – create users, assign user roles, manage organisation as well as the functions of the¬†Publisher and User roles
  • Publishers – add, modify and delete data on top of the functions of the User Role
  • Users – perform searches, add watches, add areas of interest and message other users
