Learn about the system roles and add-on permissions for SiteVault users.
SiteVault system roles and add-on permissions define the levels of access that users at your research organization or site have to the system. The system roles define what documents and information a user can access and manage. The add-ons provide flexibility to extend additional permissions to a user’s system role to serve the unique needs of your research organization or site.
Research Organization Administrators and Site Administrators can create users and manage each user’s system roles and add-ons. See the Managing Users page for more information.
The system roles and add-ons are based on how information is structured in SiteVault, where documents and data can exist at the level of the research organization, site, or study.
Every user in SiteVault must be assigned a system role at the research organization level and at least one site. The following system roles are available:
||Research Organization Administrator
||Provides full access to all data and functionality in SiteVault. Users with this system role can create and manage user accounts for the entire research organization (across multiple sites, if applicable).
|Research Organization Staff
||The basic system role for all nonadministrative research staff. Provides view-only access to research organization-level information.
|Research Organization External
||The basic system role for monitors, CRAs, or auditors. Provides no access to any research organization-level data and documents.
||Users with this system role can view and manage all information and documents, adjust settings, and add new users at the site level.
||The basic system role for all nonadministrative research staff. Users with this system role can create documents, manage study participants, and send eConsent documents for their assigned studies.
||Provides read-only access to SiteVault. The user can be added to Study records to view limited study-level documents and data.
|Site Viewer (All Studies)
||Site staff with this role can access (but not edit) study information and documents, as well as participate in relevant workflows.

In addition, one or more additional permissions can be added to the Research Organization Staff and Site Staff system roles to extend a user’s access to certain data and documents:
|Research Organization Staff
||Patients & Recruiting
