Global roles and Producer/Consumer types
A Talend Data Catalog license provides Producer and Consumer user types. By default, all users are Consumer users.
If you are assigned to a role with capabilities associated with a Producer type such as Security Administrator, you are counted as a Producer on the license side.
If you are assigned to a role with capabilities associated with a Consumer type such as Application Designer, you are counted as a Consumer on the license side.
