Roles determine the activities/permissions that an Enterprise Steam user can perform within your environment. Enterprise Steam ships with two default roles: admin and standard user. These default roles are sufficient for most Enterprise Steam deployments and, in general, should not be changed. You can create additional roles, however, if you require more granularity in the way that your users access and utilize Enterprise Steam.
