I think that the permission to create Reporters should be removed from the Power User and only allowed for the Admin.

Change History (7)

What is the reason for the change?

When the roles were specified the 'Administrator' role was intended for stuff related to user-account management (users, groups, quota, etc). The 'Power user' was intended as a biological administrator (Array LIMS, annotation types, reporters, etc). The ability to add reporters is needed to be able to create things in the Array LIMS part.

The power user also has plugin admin rights. We discussed splitting this into another role but never came to a decision.
