Once your TFS site is installed and running (click here for installation instructions), you will want to create accounts for authors, administrators and other users of the site.
By default a new TFS site offers the following user roles:
adm (admin): Can perform any administrative and configuration function on a TFS site, except shutdown of service.
aut (author): Can create and edit documents on any library (storage service) on the TFS site that allows authoring. By default a new TFS site has one library, with authoring enable.
del (delete): Allows users of a Clinical Trials Processor (CTP) file storage service or TFS site to delete files. Not generally granted to TFS users.
dep (department): Adds the user to the "department" group. Authors can grant this group access privileges to documents they are creating.
pub (publisher): Can make a document public, that is, accessible to all users of the site, whether logged in or not.
shu (shutdown): Allows user to shut down the MIRC (CTP or TFS) service from within their browser. Normally assigned only under special circumstances for large clinical trials.
upd (update): Allows user to upload a file (eg, TFS-installer.jar) to the Downloads page of a TFS site. Normally only used by administrators of sites that distribute software. (This capability is disabled by default for new TFS sites.)
By clicking the "Show All Roles" button, you can select the following roles. These roles are used by the Clinical Trials Processor functions of MIRC and are generally not relevant to TFS users.
gue (guest): Grants users access to file stored in a CTP file storage service.
imp (import): Allows users of CTP sites to establish credentials for other sites communicating data to them.
pro (proxy): Allows users of CTP sites to grant guest status to another user to enable them to view a designated users images.
qad (quarantine admin): Allows user to access quarantined objects in a CTP pipeline.
rea (read): Allows user to view images they have added to a CTP storage service.
You can learn more about setting up and running a TFS site by reading articles on the MIRC wiki site or by viewing the brief video tutorials available here.
