Creating an Application Role
WHAT ARE APPLICATION ROLES?
Application Roles are a type of Security Role. They control the level of access users have to the features of the application.
Due to the fact that a View Profile is connected to an Application Role (see step 4, image tag 7, below), Application Roles also control which dashboards are displayed to users – they see the dashboards configured within the View Profile connected to their Application Role.
Application Roles can only be created by users who have the relevant permissions within the console. These permissions are included in the built-in ‘Administrator’ Application Role.
