This topic introduces the features of the Services Security View > Roles Tab.
The Roles tab enables you to create roles and assign permissions. Each role can have different permissions for different services. For example, the Analysts role can have different role permissions based on the selected service.
Before you can add users to roles, you need to define user roles, usually by function, and assign permissions to the roles.
Procedures related to this tab are described in Hosts and Services Procedures.
