Configure Roles

If the default Roles would not satisfy your organization's access management needs, you can:

  • Modify existing Roles by adding or removing permissions from them.

The default System Admin and Self Roles cannot be modified.

Create a custom Role

  1. On the navigation bar, click administration.png Administration and choose Roles.

  2. At the top, click New Role.

  3. Give this new Role a name.

    The new Role will be listed on the left pane under Custom Roles

  4. Click the Permissions tab.

  5. Select the permissions that you want included in this Role.

    Your selection will be auto-saved.

  6. To assign this Role to users, click the Members tab on the right pane and type the user name into the input field.

Modify the basic Member Role

The Member role defines basic access level for all organization members.

You can modify the Member Role by enabling or disabling some of the permissions it includes.
