  2. Go to the Resources tab. The Resources tab displays a list of previously created resource sets and their descriptions. You can also edit the resource set from this page.

  3. For the resource set, click Edit. This allows you to edit and create new assignments, edit the resource set itself, and delete the resource set entirely.

  4. From the drop-down box, select View or edit assignments to create a new custom admin assignment.


    To edit an existing custom resource set, select Edit resource set.

  5. On the Administrator Assignment by Role page, the resource set you just created is pre-populated. In the Complete the assignment section, select:

    • The admin who should have this role. Admin can be users, groups, or both.

    • The custom role you want to use for the resource set. You can also preview the roles assigned.


      You can also add, edit, and delete assignments from this section for the given resource set.
