Friendly names for ROLES in the API

I'm working on an API-based connector that can translate user/employee data between two systems, so that the information only has to be entered once. We want to use "friendly names" for these roles in the UI, but I have not been able to find a list of such anywhere in the online documentation. The "roles" in this case correspond to entitlements and have names like "CanManageMySettings", "CanManageUsers", "CanResetPassword", etc. There are about 50 of them. We can make up friendly names, I suppose, but we want to use "official" ones if possible. I have not been able to match up the check-boxes in the Employee management User Access section.

Hi Wing,

I can help you with this. Please find the mapping for Roles and Settings on the user admin page. As you can see some roles are unmapped as they depend on the features on the account.

CanUseFileBox = Use personal File Box
CanChangePassord = Change Their Password
CanManageMySettings = Can Access Personal Settings,
CanManageUsers = Manage Clients,
CanCreateFolders = Create Root level Folder in Shared Folder,
CreateNetworkShareConnectors = Create Network Share Connectors,
CreateSharePointConnectors = Create SharePoint Connectors,
CreateBoxConnectors ,
CreateDropboxConnectors ,
CreateOneDriveBusinessConnectors ,
CanSendDocumentsForSignature = Send Documents for e-signnature,
CanViewAllDocuments = View All e-signature Documents,
CanManageRightSignatureTemplates = Manage e-signature templates,
AdminBilling = View/Edit Billing Information,
AdminBranding = Edit account Appearance,
AdminChangePlan = Request plan Change,
AdminFileBoxAccess = Access other users File Boxes and Sent Items,
AdminManageEmployees = Manage Employees,
AdminRemoteUploadForms = Manage Remote Upload Forms,
AdminReporting = Access Reporting,
AdminSharedDistGroups = Edit other Users Shared Address Book,
AdminSharedAddressBook = Edit Shared AddressBook,
AdminViewReceipts = View Receipts and Billing Notification,
AdminDelegate = Delegate Amin Privileges,
AdminManageFolderTemplates = Manage Folder Templates,
AdminEmailMessages = View Notification History,
AdminSSO = Configure Single Sign on Settings,
AdminSuperGroup = Manage Super User Group,
AdminCreateSharedGroups = Share distribution groups,
AdminConnectors = Create and Manage Connectors,
AdminAccountPolicies  = Can Access Company Account Permissions
AdminCanAdministerCustomerAccount ,
AdminPolicyDefinitions = Can Manage Policies,

Please let us know if this works for you. If the two systems you are trying to connect use Active Directory or another user store, you could use Policy Based Administration on the account with ShareFile User Management tool to manage/Create employees.
