There are two types of user roles in App Controller.

User RolePermissions
AdministratorMembers of the Administrators user role can perform all administrative actions on all App Controller objects. This is a built-in group and cannot be deleted or renamed. Note:  VMM administrators in connected VMM management servers are not automatically added to the App Controller Administrators user role.

During Setup, this role is automatically populated with all supported users and groups in the local Administrators group of the computer on which App Controller is installed.
Self-Service UserAdministrators can create one or more Self-Service user roles in which to delegate user access to Windows Azure subscriptions or hosting service providers. Self-Service users can deploy and manage services only to Windows Azure subscriptions or hosting service providers to which they have access. Important: Support for hosting service providers is available only in System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Additionally, Self-Service user roles can be designated as Read-only for the specified scope.
