Overview Tab

This tab identifies the role with a unique system-assigned ID number, a namespace and a name. Each role also has a type which tends to match the types of permissions and responsibilities associated with it.

Overview tab definitions:

Title

Description

Note: When creating a new role, you must select its type before the system will generate the document.  See Creating New Roles.
