Roles

There is a security update available for your version of Drupal. To ensure the security of your server, you should update immediately! See the available updates page for more information.

Roles allow you to fine tune the security and administration of Drupal. A role defines a group of users that have certain privileges as defined in user permissions. Examples of roles include: anonymous user, authenticated user, moderator, administrator and so on. In this area you will define the role names of the various roles. To delete a role choose "edit".

By default, Drupal comes with two user roles:

  • Anonymous user: this role is used for users that don't have a user account or that are not authenticated.
  • Authenticated user: this role is automatically granted to all logged in users.
