Assign a User to a Role

When you add a new user to SolarWinds N-central, you assign the user a Role. The Role defines the permissions that the user has to perform work for customers and devices. The user cannot perform any work until you assign a Role.

For more information on see, see the help topic What is a Role.

You can assign a user to multiple roles. Roles are a set of permissions allowing the access to a feature. If the user is assigned two roles where in one role a feature is allowed, and another role it is not, the role that allows access to the feature takes precedence. That is, that feature will be accessible.
