A role is a collection of permissions that a user inherits which enable them to perform certain tasks or operations in CloudCheckr CMx.
The role is the foundation for all access management in CloudCheckr. As a customer, you will start with an existing role or create a role and then assign permissions, users, and accounts to that role. The intersection of these objects determines who has access to what in the CloudCheckr application.
Roles are a component of CloudCheckr's Role Based Access Control (RBAC), which is a method for managing access based on the roles assigned to users.
The Roles tab in Access Management is where you can view, search for, modify, or create a role.
