Admin User Roles and Permissions in Magento 2.0
Magento permissions are used to create different levels of access to Admin panel. After your store is first installed, you are given all the access information for the Administrator role and you have full permissions. You can change access level for different people who work on your site. Your developers can be given access to only a part of your admin panel. If you would like to give them limited access to Admin panel, you need to change their permissions. In order to do so, you need to create different roles with different levels of access and then assign roles to your admin users.
