Adds a new custom role to the site.
New-AdminRole [-Name] <String> [-Description <String>] [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]
New-AdminRole adds a new custom role object to the site. Once a new role has been created, you can add permissions to the role which define what operations the role conveys.
Roles represent a job function, such as 'help desk administrator', and contain a list of permissions that are required to perform that job function.
To assign a role to an administrator, you combine it with a scope which indicates what objects the role can operate on. This pair (also known as a 'right') can then be assigned to an administrator. See Add-AdminRight for further details.
The identifier of the new role is chosen automatically, and custom roles created with this cmdlet always have their BuiltIn flag set to false.
You cannot modify built-in roles, and only some license editions support custom roles.

The newly created role.
Roles are created without any permissions. Use the Add-AdminPermission to add permissions.
C:\PS> New-AdminRole -Name Supervisor -Description "My custom supervisor role" C:\PS> $list = Get-AdminRole 'Help Desk Administrator' | Select -Expand Permissions C:\PS> Add-AdminPermission -Role Supervisor -Permission $list C:\PS> Add-AdminPermission -Role Supervisor -Permission $extras C:\PS> Add-AdminRight -Administrator DOMAIN\TestUser -Role Supervisor -All
Creates a new role called 'Supervisor', and then copies the permissions from the help desk role and adds some extras. Then gives this role (with the all scope) to user 'TestUser'.
