Risk Manager uses Identity and Access Management (IAM) to manage access to model resources. To grant access to a model resource, assign one or more IAM roles to a user, group, or service account. Risk Manager permissions are incorporated into the IAM roles.
Risk Manager Roles

The following table lists the predefined roles for Risk Manager, their description, and which permissions they include. Grant these roles at the organization level.

Risk Manager custom roles
In addition to predefined roles, Risk Manager supports the ability to create customized IAM roles. You can create a custom IAM role and assign that role one or more permissions. Then, you can grant the new role to your collaborators. Use custom roles to create an access control model that maps directly to your needs, alongside the available predefined roles offered by Google.
This document does not describe how to create a custom role. For in-depth information about custom roles and step-by-step instructions for creating a custom role, see Creating and managing custom roles in the IAM documentation.
