View platform roles and details

A platform role is a set of permissions and privileges that you assign to users and groups in Cloud Commander. These roles determine what actions users and groups can see and perform in Cloud Commander.

Cloud Commander users only see the menu options and dialogs for their assigned roles. See Platform roles required for specific tasks. For the list of all Cloud Commander roles, see Platform roles dictionary.
If you can't see a menu option or dialog that you need, contact the Cloud Commander administrator at your MSP organization.

Platform roles are organized into categories and subcategories.

For a list of all the Cloud Commander platform roles by category with their descriptions and permissions, see the Platform roles section.
