Manage Roles


This guide has information about creating and managing Sumo Logic roles. In Sumo Logic, an administrator controls access to capabilities and data by assigning capabilities and search filters to roles, and then assigning user to roles. For more information, see Role-Based Access Control.


To manage users and roles, you must have the administrator role or your role must have been assigned the manage users and roles capability.

To access the Roles page, in the main Sumo Logic menu select Administration > Users and Roles > Roles.
