Roles and Permissions Matrix

Enterprise Architect has a powerful and flexible Relationship Matrix that can be used to visualize coverage of any two dimensions including Activities and Roles. Roles and Activities can be grouped into Packages and displayed in a matrix view with visual indicators showing if an Activity has a Role covering it. The matrix can be saved to the Resources window and recalled at any time. The matrix can be included in automatically generated reports or exported to a spreadsheet file for further analysis. The Organization Chart diagram can be used to assist in the analysis of roles used in the matrix.

The diagram is part of the Strategic Modeling group of diagrams and shows the structure of an organisation including officials, roles, responsibilities, business units or departments. The roles or business units can be displayed in a diagram using a tree layout or in a list view.
