Imply Polaris uses a role-based access control (RBAC) model to manage user access to protected data and resources. It leverages built-in roles in the form of user groups to deliver fine-grained control that allows for varying levels of access.
You can assign individual roles, add users to existing Polaris groups, or create new groups corresponding to the specific roles within your organization. To learn more about groups in Polaris, see User groups.
Polaris roles determine the resources and the level of access available to users in the context of your organization.
