User Roles

Article Summary

A role is an identity with permissions that determine what the role can and cannot do in Wasabi. A role can be associated with any user who needs that identity. For example, “contract engineer” may be a role. If Mary, Bob, Jennifer, and John are associated with that role, they would share in the permissions defined for a “contract engineer.”

As a user, you might have permission to switch roles created within the current or another Wasabi account. In this way, you can switch to a role, use the Wasabi Management Console with permissions that you do not normally have, and then exit from the role to surrender the permissions. For example, switching to a might grant you access to resources typically not available to you. If you normally functions as a contract engineer, you might need to access schematic drawings and can switch to the “engineer-schematics” role to do so.

Roles are described in more detail in Roles.
