        Note: Grant Access Rights refer to the level of access rights that are associated with the new role such as managing the app approval process, generating administrator audit reports, managing apps and devices, and other categories.
      2. Select the access rights for the new role, and then click Save.
    • To create a role based on an existing role, follow these steps:
