Role Class
Members  Example 
WebReports.Api.Roles Namespace : Role Class

Roles are created to specify how a user or group of users interfaces with Exago. Roles can restrict access to folders or data objects. Roles can also override the General Settings.

A Role object refers to the definition of an Exago Role. At minimum, a role contains an ID (name), a General object representing any General Settings overrides and a Security object representing data object or report tree folder tenancy.
