User / Firm Administration

User Administration functions enable authorized front, middle, back office administrators to manage user access to applications and services.

Permissions assignment begins with the Entity Officer (for Futures & Options) and Designated Person (for BrokerTec) who has direct contact with CME Group's Global Account Management to request services. Both roles can be performed by the same individual.

Self-Service Application Roles

  • Admin Manager: The Entity Officer entitles at least two Front / Middle / Back Office Admin Managers to manage user application permissions.
  • Application or Service Administrator: The Admin Manager or Entity Officer specifies assigns an Application or Service Administrator to manage application user access and assign permissions to use, submit and approve self-service requests submitted by entity users.
