View User Roles and Permissions

A role determines your level of access within Bamboo.  Correctly assigning roles is important as roles directly impact what you can see and the actions you can take.

Each role is assigned permission to Read, Write or  Read and Write. A Read permission means a user has the ability to view and download. A Write permission means a user has read permission as well as the ability to create, update, delete, and restore.
