Roles are defined within the Roles module of the irCatalog Manager Website. A role consists of a role name and a set of permissions that can be assigned to that role. Roles can then be assigned to users and groups to define what functionality in irCatalog those users and groups can perform.
irCatalog comes with 6 pre-configured roles. These roles are usually sufficient for most users' needs, but roles may be added, edited or deleted as needed. A "RuleApp Administrator" can do everything except administer catalog security (users and roles), which is what a "User Administrator" can do. A "RuleEngine User" can open rule applications and execute rule sets using the Rule Engine Service. The remaining roles are used for rule authors, to give them the ability to open and modify rule applications and access other irCatalog features. See the Security Permissions section for additional detail about all of the permissions.
