Introduction

A role is a combination of one permission set and one or more application scopes. A user can have single or multiple roles. A role can be added, modified, or deleted. 


A permission set specifies a set of Aqua operations that can be performed by users with the associated role(s). To know more about permission sets, see Overview of Permission Set.


An application scope specifies a set of system resources that can be accessed (viewed or edited) by users with the associated role(s). To know more about Application Scopes, see Application Scopes


Application Scopes are limited only to the Enterprise plan.
