In this section, you are introduced to settings that you can use to customize Zuora.
Zuora supports an extensive array of configuration settings, providing you with the flexibility and controls to customize your Zuora solution to fit your specific needs. Within each module, there are a number of configuration settings, with some settings being visible to all users and others visible only to those with administrator-level access. For example, only an administrator can add new users to your tenant or create custom user roles that restrict access to certain operations.
A few settings in particular that you may want to review and configure in advance are:
|Administration||Manage User Roles||This setting is viewable to administrators, who can create custom roles to control user permissions at a granular level.|
