Role Based Permissions

Cloud Manager has pre-configured roles with appropriate permissions. For example, a developer develops code and has the permission to push the code to the Git Repository. Alternatively, a business owner has different permissions allowing them to define the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and approve deployments.

User Roles

Role management for Cloud Manager is done inside the Adobe Admin Console. Any user of Cloud Manager must be a member of the customer’s IMS Organization and have the Adobe Managed Services Product Context.
