Applies to: Centrify Identity Service

You create roles to assign applications, administrative rights, and policies to separate sets of users. Only members of the sysadmin role or members of role with the Role Management permission can create a role.

Creating a role is a three-part process:
Note: If you are creating a identity platform administrator role, there’s a fourth step: adding administrative rights (permissions)—see Creating identity platform administrators.

The following procedure creates a role—the first part of the process. The new role is added to the Roles page. It has no members, no administrative rights, and no assigned applications.
  1. Login to the Cloud Manager at
  2. In Cloud Manager, click Roles
  3. Click Add Roles. Cloud Manager displays the Add Roles dialog box.
  4. Enter the role name and a description and click OK.
  5. Click Save
Note: The role name can contain letters and numbers. You cannot use special characters or spaces. Be sure to give the role an appropriate and somewhat user-friendly name because the roles you create are displayed as application tags in the user portal. Once created, the role cannot be renamed.
