Managing Rialto User Roles

To manage Rialto user roles, you must have one of the following roles:
  • User Manager
  • User Administrator

The below user roles provide access to Rialto functionality:

  • Rialto Administrator, Rialto Manager, Super Selector and New for December! Selector-Limited roles become available in the system only when Rialto is enabled in Alma for your institution. 
  • Purchasing Operator and Selector roles are Alma user roles, but they receive additional privileges in Rialto when Rialto is enabled. 

For a comprehensive list of Alma user roles, see Managing User Roles

Rialto User Roles – Descriptions and Accessible Components 

The following table describes the roles that can be configured for users, and the Rialto components that each user role can access. All users can search in Rialto (see Searching the Marketplace), view recommendation feeds (see Viewing Recommendation Feeds), add items to shopping cart, and work with lists (see Working with Lists). 

User roles (actually, the internal privileges associated with the roles) determine not only which pages a user can access, but often the fields, options, jobs, or actions that the user can perform on these pages. For more information about what roles can perform what actions, see the respective areas in the documentation. Additional information is provided in the Roles Report and Privileges Report.
