Security Roles

When you add users to Qalyptus Server, you must apply a role to them. Roles are the maximum level of access that a user can have on Qalyptus Server. With permissions, the role determines who can publish, edit, delete, or just view content, or who can manage users and administer.

When installing Qalyptus Server, three default roles are created: Administrators, Developers, and Users. You can see the permissions of these roles without being able to edit or delete them.
