A profile is a set of access rights given to a user. Users have to be given a certain profile in order to access applications, processes, cases or tasks.
The admin can map users to a profile in the Organization menu.
There are 3 default profiles in Bonita BPM Portal, User, Administrator and Process manager, which correspond to functions performed in the Bonita BPM Portal.
Users can also have several profiles and switch between them in the Bonita BPM Portal in the navigation bar.
A user given a User profile can perform everyday tasks: start cases, perform tasks, create subtasks, add comments to a task.
