All new and existing users are assigned the default role. Changes to this role may affect all existing users and any users that are invited in the future.

  • Assign role: Assign the role to users.


    When you assign or un-assign a role, the privileges are immediately applied to the assigned user's account. The user does not need to re-login to see the changes.

    • You can un-assign a role from users through the Role Details page. Select the role, and then click the Users tab. For more information, see Role Details Page.

  • Delete: Delete the role.


    You are permitted to delete roles that are currently assigned to users. Deleting a role may remove privileges from one or more users. This action cannot be undone. Before deleting, you should verify the list of users assigned to the role. For more information, see Role Details Page.
