RBAC stands for Role-Based Access Control. This is a method of restricting access based on the user’s “role” within the organization. This helps to narrow the access to what the user needs to be able to do, and is typically implemented with “roles” or permission groups that users can be assigned to. Silktide has some groups set up by default, including Account administrators, Developers, and Content Managers.
While this may sound complicated at first, the basic idea is that there is a lot of granularity to the permissions you can set, they can be reused across a number of roles, and users can have multiple roles, providing a lot of flexibility for determining access requirements and keeping it centrally managed.
