What are roles?
Roles are a collection of rights that can be assigned either to groups or directly to users. The rights define the scope of functionality and data to which a user has access.
Quickstart to create roles and rights
Go to the Roles screen in the Organisation section of the Administration screen.
- Click on "add role" in the top right corner to open the Role editor.
Figure 1: Role Editor
After you have entered a name and a description for the role, you can assign application-level rights (e.g. Admin, Audit Log) and resource-level rights to the role.
The section highlighted slightly in blue is the Rights builder which can be used to create rights for streams (e.g., read & write) and features (e.g., "change codec").
By clicking on "Add right" you add a so created right to the role. You can assign multiple rights to a role.
Don't forget to click "save" in the upper right corner to finish.

It is not possible to directly assign rights to the user. You always must create a role for that.
Log out for changes to take effect
Changes to a role or right come into effect after the corresponding user has logged out or the session has expired.
