Create a custom role

If the preconfigured roles available in
BlackBerry UEM
do not meet your organization's requirements, you can create custom roles for administrators. You can also create custom roles to restrict administrative tasks to a defined list of user groups. For example, you can create a role for new administrators that restricts their permissions to a user group for training purposes only.
