Add a role

Custom roles are globally scoped and provide full operational access to the related pages and actions for a defined area. For example, if a custom role has permissions allowed for the zone features, any user assigned to the role has access to all functionality available on the Zones or Zone Details pages.
If access is not selected for a role, users will not see that page in the  menu or be able to navigate to the page from anywhere within the console. For example, if a custom role has permissions allowed for threats and disallowed for devices, the Threat Protection page displays in the menu while the Devices page does not. If the user views the Threat Details page for a threat, the affected devices and zones will display but the user will receive an error page when attempting to click the link for details for a specific device.
