Each PMM user is associated with a role that includes permissions. Permissions determine the privileges that a user has in PMM.
By creating roles, you can specify which data can be queried based on specific label criteria, for instance, allowing the QA team to view data related to test environments.

The following topics are covered as part of access control:
