Roles contain permissions for users. They can be reused and they eliminate the overhead of granting permissions to users individually. You can define different user roles depending on your requirements. 

In this tutorial, you add a custom role to your organization.

Let's get started.

  1. Log in to API Cloud.
  2. Click the settings icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen and then select Roles.
  3. Click Add Role

  4. Provide the Role Name and Permission. To add the custom role to members of your organization, type their email. 

    You can only assign roles to users who are already in your organization. Make sure you add new members to the organization, before you assign custom roles. For more details on inviting new members, see Register and Invite Members.


The permissions and their corresponding privileges for the different cloud types are listed below.
