Hi Krishna kumari,

Roles are a mode of authorization into the portal.

The basic roles that are shipped along with SAP are :

1. Content Adminstrator - Has the access for the content being created in Portal ( roles, pages, iviews etc)

2. User Administrator - Has the access for creating users in the portal.

3. System Administrator - Deals with the system administration and permissions.

4. Super Adminstrator - As the name suggests its a superior to the rest of the 3 roles mentioned here, it is infact a combination of all the 3 roles.

If you assign this role you can access all the 3 roles.

These apart, there are other roles like, eu_core which is for the endusers.

everyone - has the basic authorization

All these apart you can also create your own roles and assign them accordingly.

Please refer to this

Hope this helps.
