Roles

Roles allow you to create special privileges and profiles specifying what an agent can see and do within your Freshdesk support portal. These roles help you classify your team into different sections and assign them capabilities so that they get to do what they need to on their help desk, without getting in each other’s way. They are especially useful for larger teams where there are different groups of employees trying to handle different things.

The Roles pipeline can be used to request and retrieve details of a role in your help desk. Read more about this here
