How does module based permissions work?

In Mira access to functionality is controlled by giving a user access to certain modules in the system (“module based permissions”).

This means that you can limit access to e.g. fundraising information by only giving access to the fundraising module to relevant users. Access to fundraising information both on an aggregated level and for persons and organisations is only available for users who have access to the fundraising module.

Users with system administration privilege assign access to different modules of the system for other users on the tab “user information” in the person profile. What permissions are available depends on what modules you subscribe to.

All users in Mira are persons. When you assign permissions to a person, a user with login credentials is created. If you remove all permissions for a person, the actions performed in the system remains logged to that person. Therefore you should normally not remove a person for a user, even though that person no longer have access to the system.
