# User Storage (Configuration Server)
layline.io divides the management of Users and Roles between
- Configuration Server, and
- Reactive Engine Cluster
Users and Roles managed on each of these entities are completely separated, hence they need to be managed separately and also carry different privileges.
The concept of Users and Roles should be familiar to most:
- Configuration Servers and Reactive Engines each may have a set of Users.
- Each User can be assigned to one or more Roles.
- Each Role has a number of assigned Privileges.
- Privileges are different between Configuration Server and Reactive Engine Cluster
The following chapters describe the setup of users, roles, and privileges for the Configuration Server. If you want to set up users, roles, and privileges for a Reactive Engine Cluster, you can check how to do so here

The current User which is displayed here, is the User which is logged in to the Configuration Server (4) and their current privileges (5). The privileges displayed is the condensed result of all privileges inherited through the roles that this user has been assigned to.
