When creating an administrator role, it is often easier to modify an existing role than it is to create an admin role from scratch. The Compare Roles tool makes this process easy.


If you have fewer than two or more than two roles selected, the Compare button does not display.

  • By default, only those categories and subcategories whose settings are different are displayed. You can display all the permissions including those settings that are identical across the two selected roles by enabling Show All Permissions.
  • If you choose two roles that have identical permissions across the board, the console displays this message at the top of the Compare Roles page.

    "There are no differences in permissions between the two roles."

  • You may also select Export to create an Excel-viewable CSV file (comma-separated values). This CSV file contains the complete list of settings for Role 1 and Role 2, enabling you to analyze the differences between them.
