Assign a role to a user

A user inherits roles from all groups to which the user belongs. You can also assign roles directly to a user. Whenever a user is assigned a new role, it only takes affect after logging in with a new session.

Before you begin

Role required: user_admin or admin

About this task

To grant the admin role to a user, you must also have the admin role. To grant the security_admin role to a user, you must also have the security_admin role, and must elevate to the security_admin role before granting the security_admin role to other users. See Elevate to a privileged role.

You cannot delete roles that are assigned to the group from the user record. You must remove the user from the group record.


  1. Navigate to User Administration > Users and then open a user record.
  2. In the Roles related list, click Edit.
  3. In the Collection list, select the desired roles, and then click Add.
  4. Click Save.
