Defining custom user roles

A custom role is a set of permissions that are applied to a user so that they can perform certain administrative tasks.

About this task

  1. As an organizational security measure, users that are assigned limited administrative permissions see a streamlined view of the Administration tab and can access only the administrative pages that they are allowed to use.
  2. You can't delete a custom role if it's assigned to a user. Re-assign the user to a different role and then delete the custom role.
  3. Predefined user roles cannot be deleted.


  1. Go to Main menu () > User Management > Users & Roles > Edit Roles.
  2. Click Add Role and give the custom role a unique name and a description.
  3. Select the capabilities for this role and click Save.

What to do next

Assign this role to users.
