Assign Roles to a User or Group

A role policy combines the tasks and devices that make up a role with one or more users who are assigned to those rules. You can use WatchGuard System Manager or WatchGuard Server Center to assign one or more roles to a user or user group. When you assign more than one role to a user or group, that user or group can complete all of the tasks for all devices from both roles.
