Employee user rights

Last modified: 9. March 2021

Overview of platform rights

In this section, certain rights (i.e. authorisations) can be granted to users for the ITscope platform and ITscope API.

All changes to the user rights are only effective after a new logout/login.

Account owner

Being the account owner is an implied right, granted to the first registered employee of a newly created company. This right is awarded automatically.

Since only one employee can have this right, it cannot be assigned. Instead, it must be transferred from the current account owner to another employee.

The account owner can manage contracts and change or acquire ITscope contracts.


With this right, other employees can be granted or deprived of their user rights. In addition, the administrator can enable or disable employee accounts.

You cannot remove administrator rights for your own account, this can only be done by another administrator. This always leaves at least one administrator in the company.

The other user rights are not automatically included in this administrator right.

Place orders

With this right, prepared orders on the purchasing board can be sent to the suppliers. This right is not needed to add products to shopping carts.


With this right, customer orders can be processed on the salesboard. In addition, each employee will receive a notification when an order has been received.

This permission is only relevant for accounts that list on ITscope and accept orders.

Manage own company

Your company profile can be managed with this right, e.g. descriptions, addresses and other elements of the company profile.

Add a partner

This right allows you to add other companies to your network.

However, this right does not authorise setting up or configuring eServices from the partners, and also does not allow the ending of a partnership.

Configure eServices

With this right, you can configure eServices from partners that are already part of your partner network. This right also allows the ending of a partnership.

The customer number given to the partnership can only be changed with this right.

This user right does not allow the addition of other companies to your own company network (see above).

Manage data exports

Exports can be created and configured with this right.

Any employee can download these exports, regardless of this right.

B2B Suite admin

If a B2B Suite account exists for the creation of multi-supplier capable B2B purchasing portals, this right can be used to assign B2B Suite administrator rights to an employee. For more information, please see the B2B Suite Help section.

Manage B2B Suite portals

With this right, if an ITscope B2B Suite account exists, portal management rights for the B2B Suite can be given to an employee. For more information, please see the B2B Suite Help section.

Use quote methods

With this right, the use of the API Businessquotes method can be restricted.

Use deal methods

With this right, the use of the API Businessdeals method can be restricted.

Use cart methods

With this right, the use of the API BusinessCarts method can be restricted.
