This topic introduces the Add Role and Edit Role dialogs accessible from the Admin > Security view > Roles tab.
In the Add Role and Edit Role dialogs, you can add or edit a role and the permissions assigned to it. You can also specify the query-handling attributes for role members to lock down the information that they can retrieve. The structure of these dialogs is the same. The only difference is that you either add a new role or modify an existing role.
When you change permissions for a role, the change is immediately applied to users who are assigned the particular role after the role is saved.
