New role for Manage Import Profiles
Currently users must have a Cat Admin role or Gen Sys Admin role to be able to Manage Import Profiles (change/add profiles). This also gives them access to the Configuration area of Alma. There should be a role to permit users to Manage Import Profiles that does NOT also give them access to the Alma configuration area. Access to the Alma configuration menu should be separate from the ability to Manage Import Profiles.

I thank the author for creating the post; it was really useful to me and I enjoyed it. I made a note about it on the https://bit.ly/3B7imEG. I'd appreciate it if you could read it and accept it. Thank you for taking the time to express your issue.

as the others have commented, this ability to manage Import Profiles should not be limited to an Administrative role. It would make sense for something like Catalog Manager or Repository Manager be able to manage their own Import Profiles.

Why not just add the privilege to the Catalog Manager role?

As others have mentioned, most of our staff who work with Import Profiles are in the Cataloging Unit and should not have access to configuration. Having a separate role for Import Profiles would solve the problem of simply telling them, "don't touch anything else!"

Those who manage the importing are not those who need administration access.

I would also suggest that the role for permitting users to manage import profiles could also allow them to use the FRBR/Dedup utility - another cataloguing-related function.
