How does a Network Manager edit their network details and requirements?

This article details how a Network Manager can edit their Network details and Network requirements in the RIW System.

This instruction applies to the following user roles:

  • Helpdesk
  • Network Manager


Go to and log in using your credentials.


Click on Administration > Networks.


On the Network screen, click on the network name to highlight the row and then Edit.


Extreme caution should be exercised before amending any Network details. Please contact the RIW Service Desk for further guidance if required.

Editing the main Details of the assigned Network could have wide-ranging effects, extreme caution should be used when changing this information. Any changes made to the name will be updated wherever this name is referenced in the RIW System. If the Is Active checkbox is deselected, the Network, it's projects, sites and zones will become inactive and will not be available for selection when swiping into a site or when awarding related Network competencies and job roles. 


You can also define the Rail Corridor Access Job Role, which is a mandatory requirement for any network job role created for the defined network.  The job role selected will also be used as part of the calculation to determine the rail/non-rail status of a cardholder when accessing site via a Kiosk solution.

Any changes made are confirmed by clicking on the Save button.


On the Requirements tab, you can add/edit requirements for the Network. Pre-requisite requirements are competencies and job roles that a RIW cardholder must hold to gain access to that Network. For example, if asbestos is known to be at the Network, a RIW cardholder may need to have undergone asbestos safety training, otherwise the RIW cardholder will be denied access.


To add requirements, click the Add button.


On the Add Entry Rules screen, specify the competency or job roles required for the Network.  Please note when adding requirements that variable groups of requirements can be created where either:

  1. All of the requirements in one (or more) groups are required (using the AND operator)
  2. Only one of multiple requirements in one or more groups are required (using the OR operator)
  3. A single group or combinations of such groups are required.

Please read the detail on the Add Entry Rules screen for further direction.

Search for each requirement in the relevant competency or job role field by starting to type in the field. In the example below, we have added a generic MTA competency as a Network-Based competency, and the MTA Operator role as a Network Job Role.

When the required competency or job role has been surfaced, click Add to each of the rules to add it to the requirements. The requirements will now display on the bottom of the screen.  

When the rule is completed, click on the Save button.


You can also add network contacts from this screen, who are contacts you elect to receive notification when a cardholder is denied access to site on the network in excess of defined site working hour rules. For more information on this, refer to How does a Network Manager add network contacts?
