Role-based access control (RBAC) is a method of regulating access resources based on the roles of individual users and groups defined in LogZilla providing control over the ability of an individual user to perform a specific task, such as view, create, or modify a desktop, search for specific hosts, or access various menus and components of the LogZilla interface.

System Administrators may configure Role Based Access Controls in the Group Configuration section under the Settings menu.
