Access roles

Access roles define the classes that a user can view, update, and delete through the Access of Role to Object and Access Deny rule types.

Use an access role name to grant permissions (capabilities) to users. Access roles can be referenced in requestor type instances and access group instances. The Pega Platform provides built-in access roles (with names starting with PegaRULES: ) for a variety of users:

  • Guests
  • Authenticated work users
  • Administrators
  • Developers

An access role is an instance of the Rule-Access-Role-Name rule type.
