Assign Administrative Roles

Note: The Vaultastic Inactive Store will henceforth be called the Vaultastic Open Store. During the transition, you will find references for both names within the documentation and other communications.

Overview of the administrative roles in Vaultastic

When you provision your first Vaultastic domain, two administrative roles (senior admin and junior admin ) get created for your organization.  Vault IDs assigned these roles can perform administrative tasks as mentioned in the table below: 

Senior Admin


(where orgname is the emailid of the registered user)

A Vault ID with a Sr Admin role will be able to access the Admin Panel and can perform all administrative tasks including updating domain properties, creating vaults, changing vault access rights, deleting vaults, resetting vault passwords, assigning admin roles and changing the vault viewing rights.
A senior admin can also delete or download files from the Open Store.
Junior Admin


(where orgname is the emailid of the registered user)

A Vault ID assigned a junior admin role will be able to access the Admin Panel and can perform all administrative tasks except for deleting vaults, changing vault passwords, assigning admin roles, and changing the vault viewing rights.
A junior admin can only download files from Open Store, delete operation is disabled.

By default, the senior admin role is assigned to the system default postmaster user.  

Note: For the first domain created, the roles allow admins to update the properties of the newly created domain. For subsequent Vaultastic domain addition, the roles for the organization is updated to allow update of properties of the newly created domain in addition to the existing domain.

If you login to your Vaultastic domain using an account having a senior admin role, then you can in turn assign the senior or junior admin role to any user in the domains of your organization.
