Configuring permissions
The FortiDB roles allow you to assign privileges to administrators. For information on assigning roles to administrators, see “To add or modify an administrator”.
If you are using the software-only version of FortiDB, the privileges that are available depends on the FortiDB license. For more information, see “Privileges by license type (software-only FortiDB)”.
