Custom Roles

Roles in Workspaces


Custom roles are commonly used in software platforms that require detailed access control. These custom roles allow for more granular control over permissions and access rights tailored to the specific needs and structure of the organization or system. Here are some key aspects of custom roles:

  • Flexibility and Granularity: Custom roles can be created to match particular job functions or responsibilities within an organization, allowing for a finer granularity of access control. This means permissions can be more accurately aligned with the actual duties and needs of each role.
  • Security and Compliance: Custom roles can help enhance security and ensure compliance with regulations and internal policies by enabling the creation of roles with access only to the necessary content/screen resources.
  • Efficiency and Scalability: Custom roles can improve efficiency by providing users with the access they need to perform their tasks without overloading them with unnecessary permissions. This can also make the system more scalable, as new roles can be created as the organization grows or evolves.
  • Customization to Business Processes: Organizations often have unique business processes that don’t always align neatly with generic roles. Custom roles allow for the system to be tailored to these processes, supporting more effective and streamlined operations.
  • Management and Administration: While custom roles offer significant benefits, they also require careful management to avoid complexity and potential security risks.
