Creating Read-Only Role in Enterprise Vault

Would like to create a read only role within the Enterprise Vault VAC. Know how to create a custom role within the system, but haven't been able to find any documentation that describes what each operation means. The tech notes seem to be deleted or inaccessible. Is there a list with what each operation does? 

Whats the difference in manage, administer, and view? 

How should a read only role be set up? I would like the user to be able to view everything within VAC, but be unable to change anything.

The following "Operations" will need to have a check next to them

Re: Creating Read-Only Role in Enterprise Vault

Thanks. Do you know what if there is a list where wach operation details its function? I will test your role as described, but it seems like "Can adminster" would allow you to make changes to policy. 

Re: Creating Read-Only Role in Enterprise Vault

Welcome. I'm not sure there is actually a list. I made this long time ago (EV8 I believe), and found that you do need to included the 'can administer', otherwise you don't see them at all.

You might need to 'play' with the role to see what actually is possible. If I recall correct, you can for instance see the retention categories, but if you try to change them, you get an 'access denied' error
