Create roles for a Legal Administrator

Details of the different roles available for legal administrators and how to create roles.


Cloud administrators can create different roles for legal administrators. Using roles, Cloud administrators can define the actions that Legal administrators can perform on a Legal Hold policy. The roles apply to all Legal Hold policies in that Legal Hold type. 

Example scenario

Let's consider that John Doe and Ernie Carter are two Legal administrators in your organization. 

Also, you have the following 2 types of Legal Hold policies in your organization:

Policy type Legal Hold policies in this type Legal admins to whom this type has been assigned


  • Jan
  • Feb
  • Mar
John Doe


  • Q1-2022
  • Q3-2020
  • Q2-2018
Ernie Carter

You assigned policy type Infosec to John Doe and provided him only View Legal Hold right.

In this scenario, Joe can only view the policies Jan, Feb, Mar. He will not be able to view Q1-2022, Q3-2020, Q2-2018 policies as the Compliance policy type has not been assigned to him. But, you cannot restrict Joe from viewing the details Jan, Feb, Mar Legal Hold policies. Now, if you want to restrict Joe from viewing the details of policy Jan, you must change the policy type of the Jan Legal Hold policy from Infosec to Compliance.
