  • User belonging the
    CAM Supported Admin role
    can perform custom provider account onboarding only. These users do not have access to any other pages in the application.
  • Users belonging
    CAM Global Viewer Role
    can access the application pages, without any admin privileges. This will optimize the unnecessary filtering and help with application performance.
Cost Analyst, Cost Manager, Asset Analyst, Asset Manager, Cost Viewer and Asset Viewer roles may be removed in the future. Use of these roles is discouraged.
