Authorize user to manage flow definitions and deploy flows

You can assign more than one role to a user. For example, a user might need to manage flow definitions in the DataFlow Catalog as well as deploy flows in a DataFlow environment. To authorize this user, you must assign both the DFCatalogAdmin and DFFlowAdmin roles to the user.

You must have the CDP PowerUser role.
