PE enables you to create and manage users and user groups through the console. You can also create user roles, and assign users to those roles. Permissions, such as the ability to view node groups, deploy code, or generate password reset tokens, are assigned to user roles rather than directly to users. When you assign roles to users or user groups, you are granting permissions in a more organized way.
In this quick start guide, you’ll create a new user role and give the role the permission to view the node group you created in the Adding classes quick start guide. You’ll also create a new local user, and assign your new user role to that user.

When you create new local users, you need to send them a password reset token so that they can log in for the first time.
You’re now managing a user with RBAC. By using permissions and user roles, you give the appropriate level of access and agency to each user or user group who works with PE.
Next, you’ll learn more about the basics of writing modules of your own, so you can begin customizing your deployment and getting work done. Click here when you’re ready to write your first module.
