User Management entitlements and permissions for credit unions

User management offers granular permissions so that business admins can tailor an individual’s access to money movement. Business admins control which entitlements their business users interact with as well as which accounts the users can or cannot access to move funds. Admin users can also view—and in some occasions manage—the same permissions in Banno Admin.

Granular entitlements and permissions

For security purposes, permissions can override one another. A business user can only see an entitlement and use its functionality if that entitlement’s “parent” permission(s) are configured to allow it. These troubleshooting steps help explain how permissions are enabled from the business level down to the business user account level.

Because user management allows permissions to be customized down to an account-by-account basis, there are five permission levels. The different permission levels and where they’re managed include the following:

1. Institution level
Banno manages permissions so that your institution can offer the functionality to your customers.

2. Business level

Banno Admin
Your institution views and manages entitlements in the business’s profile in Banno People.

3. Business account level

Banno Admin
Your institution views and manages permissions for accounts in the business’s profile in Banno People.

4. Business user level

Banno Admin
In Banno People, institution employees manage permissions for entitlements that allow a member of a business to use its functionality.
Banno Online
A business admin manages permissions in User management. They can enable and disable permissions to use an entitlement and feature entitlements.

5. Business user account level

Banno Admin
Your institution views and manages permissions in Banno People.
Banno Online
A business admin manages permissions in User management.

Manage business permissions

To manage a business’s permissions in Banno People, an admin user first needs the appropriate Organization and organization members user permissions enabled.
  • Users

  • Overview
  • Organization permissions
  • View all
  • Users
  • Click business
  • Permissions
  • Organization permissions
  • View all

In Banno People, permissions for business entitlements and accounts display in the business’s profile. Within the profile, a business admin can manage these permissions for how a business views and interacts with entitlements. Depending on your institution configuration and a business’s entitlements, a business’s permissions may vary but can include:

  • ACH
  • Transfers
  • Wires
  • User management

Manage business account permissions

  • Users
  • Click business
  • Permissions

  • Transfers
  • Wires

Business and account permissions

The following sections include an overview of the business entitlements and permissions that an admin user manages in Banno People:

  • ACH
  • Transfers
  • User management
  • Wires

Within each section, permissions are separated by permissions at the business level and the business account level. Because some permissions interact with others, tooltips in Banno Admin display alongside certain permissions in, helping guide admin users to correctly enable functionality. If applicable, those dependencies are noted in the permission’s definition.

Manage external applications & additional services

  • Banno People
  • Settings
  • External applications

For a credit union to manage the visibility of an external application to a business and its business users, the external application must have the User type field set to Business only or Both retail and business.

Once the external application is ready to display to business admins in Banno Online, enable the external application at the institution level in Banno People. This allows the external application to display in the Permissions section of all business profiles across the institution.

When the external application is enabled at the institution level, it is automatically enabled by default at the business level permissions. The external application is also visible, but disabled, to all business admins across the institution.

If an institution hasn’t enabled any external applications for businesses, the message Your [institution] hasn’t enabled any external applications for businesses. displays until there are enabled external applications.

Alt text
•⎯➊
•⎯➋






According to an external application’s configuration, the Link title field displays as the external application title (1) and the Description (optional) field describes the external application (2) to business admins in Banno Online and admin users in Banno People.

Business permissions

Banno People

  • Users
  • Click business
  • Permissions
  • External applications

Once the external application is enabled at the institution level, the external application is automatically enabled by default at the business level. The external application is also visible, but disabled, to all business admins. Having the external application enabled at the business level gives business admins across the institution the ability to then manage visibility of the external application to business users.

Unlike other permissions, there is not an option for the institution to manage External applications permissions at the business user level without also giving business admins the ability to manage the same permissions.

If an external application is disabled at the business level, the external application:

  • Displays as disabled in the business profile in People.
  • Does not display to business admins in User management
  • Displays as uneditable at the business user level in People. The external application cannot be updated unless it is first enabled at the business level.

Business user permissions

Enabling an external application at the business user level gives them the ability to view the external application in Banno Online.

External application permissions only manage the business user’s ability to see the external application in Banno Online—it does not control access to or login to the external application. If a business user has the link to the external application, such as a bookmark, they can still access the external application while authenticated in Banno Online.

Even if an external application is disabled, the business user may still be able to access the external application directly and perform actions allowed by their application. Permissions for accessing an external application are managed in the external application—not in Banno Online or Banno People..

Banno Online

  • User management
  • Click business user
  • Additional services

In User management, a business admin manages external applications on behalf of business users. They need to manually enable each external application at the individual business user level for any business user to view the external application in Banno Online.

Banno People

  • Users

  • Permissions
  • External applications

In Banno People, admin users can manage external applications for a business user.

Permission states

Depending on the level where an external application is or is not enabled, the external application permission may or may not be editable in the business users’s profile. If an editable permission displays, the external application is enabled at the business and institution levels (1 & 2). If an uneditable permission displays, the external application is disabled at the business level and enabled at the institution level (3).

If an external application does not display in a business user’s permissions, ensure the external application is enabled at the business and institution levels.

View-only permission settings

Select permissions can be enabled so that an organization user views the functionality in the Banno app and cannot use it for actions such as moving funds or updating permissions. This includes allowing an organization user to view-only ACH, stop payments, transfers, user management, and wires. View-only is unavailable for card payments. If an organization user needs to view the card payments functionality in the Banno app, they will also have the ability to use it.

At the organization user level, adjust the following permissions in Banno People or Banno Online so that the organization user can only view the functionality:

ACH

  1. Enable the Enabled permission.
  2. Enable the View ACH permission.
  3. Disable all other ACH permissions.

Stop payments

  1. Enable the Enabled permission.
  2. Disable all other stop payments permissions.

Transfers

  1. Enable the Enabled permission.
  2. Set the transfer limit to zero.
  3. Disable all other transfers permissions.

User management

  1. Ensure the organization user has the role of Viewer.
  2. Enable the Enabled permission.

Wires View only is not supported for Wires.

Troubleshoot

To manage an organization’s permissions in Banno People, an admin user first needs the appropriate Organization and organization members user permissions enabled.

For security purposes, permissions can override one another. An organization user can only see an entitlement and use its functionality if that entitlement’s “parent” permission(s) are configured to allow it. For example, if an organization user needs access to delete wires, an admin user first ensures the following permissions are enabled in the organization’s profile in Banno People:

  1. Wires at the organization level
  2. View wires at the organization level
  3. Delete wires at the organization level
  4. Account access at the organization account level
  5. View wires at the organization account level
  6. Delete wires at the organization account level
  7. The admin user or an organization admin continues updating permissions at the different levels.

Permission steps for admin users in Banno People
If the admin user continues managing the permissions, they complete the following steps:

  1. Wires at the organization user level
  2. View wires at the organization user level
  3. Delete wires at the organization user level
  4. Account access at the organization user account level
  5. View wires at the organization user account level
  6. Delete wires at the organization user account level

Permission steps for organization admins in Banno Online
If the organization admin manages permissions (and not the admin user in Banno People), they complete the following steps:

  1. In User management, navigate to the organization user’s profile.
  2. They select Set permissions to view the organization user permissions.
  3. In the Wires section, ensure the Enable permission is toggled on.
  4. In the same section, ensure the Delete wire permission is enabled.
  5. The organization admin navigates back to the organization user’s profile.
  6. They select the account that the organization user needs to delete wires.
  7. In the Account access section, ensure the Enable permission is toggled on.
  8. In the Wires section, ensure the Delete wires permission is enabled.

If any permissions in this flow aren’t enabled correctly, Wires functionality might not display or work properly for the organization or organization user.

If the member of an organization has trouble with an entitlement or accessing functionality, an admin user can follow these steps to ensure that permissions in Banno People are turned on at the correct levels:

  • Users
  • organization profile
  • Permissions
  • Organization permissions
  1. At the organization level, check that the entitlement is enabled for the organization.
  2. Ensure that other relevant permissions are enabled.
  • Users
  • organization profile
  • Permissions
  • Accounts
  1. At the organization account level, check that account access is enabled for the organization’s account.
  2. Ensure that other relevant permissions are enabled.
  • Users
  • organization user profile
  • Permissions
  • Organization user permissions
  1. At the organization user level, check that the entitlement is enabled for the member of the organization.
  2. Ensure that other relevant permissions are enabled.

  1. At the organization user account level, check that account access is enabled for the organization user.
  2. Ensure that other relevant permissions are enabled.

History events

Changes made in user management (updating a permission, modifying an organization user profile, etc.) by an admin user or organization admin create history events in Banno Admin. History events display in the organization user’s Activity and can be sorted using the Permissions filter under User. History events also display in Banno Activity and can be sorted using the Permissions filter under People Users.
