I am looking to understand the interaction of user types and roles. I have a creator user with the viewer role. I thought that this would limit the users ability to modify maps etc. I see that the user can still rename layers, delete layers etc in the maps even thought they have the viewer role. I have read through the documentation but I'm not seeing a clear answer. Am I misunderstanding what a role does? Is there any good videos that show how to create and manage the user types and roles for different scenarios?
Hi @GordonMcKenzie, what you may find helpful in understanding the exact permissions granted by each role is by looking at the permissions available when Creating a Custom role as below
You can set the permissions to mirror a viewer role then see the exact permissions that are turn on/off for the role.
Hope this helps!
When you mention that the user can still modify maps is this in ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Pro?
