For users in the local user group, you can provide different roles for different users by selecting the required roles for specific users. For example, user A and user B in a local user group can be assigned the admin and operator role respectively. This assignment is possible if you add user A to the user group and select the sp-admin role from the roles assigned to the user group. Similarly, to assign sp-operator role to user B, add user B to the user group and select the sp-operator role from the roles assigned to the user group .
Note: For user groups in LDAP server, the selected roles apply to all the users in the group.
