How does one assign rights to apply for central approval?
There are three ways to assign roles/rights to apply for central approval:
- Delegate individual rights for central approval. This is the method we recommend. With this you only delegate rights to apply for central approval without affecting other accesses in Altinn. How this is done is described in detail in the next item.
- Delegate the entire role of Form filler/Submitter. It is important to be aware that this role delegates all rights related to the role of Form filler/Submitter. This includes rights to other parties such as services from the Norwegian Tax Administration, Statistics Norway and many more.
- Define a separate role and give it the right to apply for central approval.
This is advanced use of Altinn and is not recommended unless you want to administer local roles in Altinn.
