Roles and access control (ACL) rights

Information on managing roles and access control (ACL) rights in Designer.

Designer builds on ServiceNow's access control model; this gives ServiceNow admins the ability to assign specific access rights via roles to different users and groups.

Roles & Groups

Designer has the following roles:

  • Designer Admin: Can assign roles, create, read and delete diagrams.
  • Designer User: Can create, read and delete diagrams.
  • Designer Reader: Can only read diagrams.
  • Designer Commit: Commits changes to relationships and elements only.
