What is a “Profile”?

A profile controls the resources accessible by a user or group of users on a platform by assigning “rights and permissions”. Each user account must have a profile, but multiple users may have the same profile. There are two “system” profiles automatically enabled for a new organization: Administrator and Default. Additional profiles can be defined by an administrator as needed for their particular organization.

Most organizations will have between 2 and 10 profile types.
