A security role is a set of permissions that defines customer, administrator, and user access to specific tasks in the services manager. For example, the first or default user created for a customer is a customer administrator. The customer administrator is automatically assigned the Customer Administrator security role (and can also be assigned other security roles). The customer administrator can then assign one or more security roles to users in the customer hierarchy.
