Before you begin
Audience: Administrators and users with the Manage roles permission enabled can edit and manage roles.
Version: v6 (what does this mean?)
Roles are sets of permissions that users can be assigned to. They determine users’ access across the whole application, and are not site-specific. Roles allow the administrator to standardize and adjust permissions in bulk.
To learn more about roles, see the following articles:
- About role permissions
- Create new roles
- Copy or duplicate a role
- Edit roles
- Delete roles
- View, sort, and search for roles
- Change role permissions
For administrators in multi-site configurations: Users are assigned to the same role across all sites. If you want to change a user’s permissions at only one site, not across the whole organization, assign them to a site-specific user group instead.
