Axon Aware and Aware+ Role Permissions
Agency Axon Evidence administrators must enable the appropriate permissions for the Roles that will use Axon Aware and Aware+ before users can access the Aware map.
The administrators can modify an existing Role to enable the permissions. If you do not want to modify an existing Role you can create a new Role or copy an existing Role and enable Axon Aware permissions. We recommend you name the Role to indicate access to Axon Aware.
See the Axon Evidence.com Roles & Permissions article for information on adding or editing Roles and permissions in Axon Evidence.com.
