  2. Click Create. Create role page opens.

  3. Enter the Role name and Role description.


  4. Select the following from the drop-downs for metrics access:

    • Label
    • Operator
    • Value of the label.

    If you want to add more than one label for a role, click + and select the values from the drop-down.
