Creating a new role

You can create a new role within the Developer Portal.

Before you begin

You must have administrator access to complete this task.


To create a new role, complete the following steps:

  1. Click People in the administrator dashboard.
  2. Select the Roles tab.
  3. Click Add role.
  4. Enter a name for the new role in Role name, and click Save.
  5. Your new role is displayed in the list of roles. You can drag any of the roles to re-order them. It's recommended to order roles from least permissive (for example, Anonymous user) to most permissive (for example, Administrator user). Users who aren't logged in have the Anonymous user role. Users who are logged in have the Authenticated user role, plus any other roles granted to their user account.


You have created a new role in the Developer Portal.

What to do next

The new role is created with the same permissions as an Authenticated user role. You can click the Permissions tab and edit the permissions as required.
