  • Global Roles - this page explains App Administration settings and how access to the App is granted to, for example, Jira users.

  • Box Configuration - this page explains what roles are available within the App and how to change them for an individual Box.

  • Configuration of the App - this page gives information on how to activate/deactivate the roles within the App.

  • Security (Overview module) - this page explains the impact of setting up security Roles for the Home (root) Box and lists available roles.
