Roles

A role is a set of JCR permissions.

Roles Configuration

The roles are stored in the repository as children of the node /hippo:configuration/hippo:roles. The following JCR permissions exist in the repository: READ, WRITE and REMOVE. The roles are also used for assigning workflows to users and groups.

The roles are referenced by the domains auth roles and can be assigned to workflows.
