Summary of Built-in Roles
There are 4 built-in roles listed in the Roles menu of the admin_edit.ctp file. Any number of
additional roles may be added to this menu.
The default roles have names matching built-in FileMaker Privilege Sets. These default roles are:

Sharing Logins Between Applications
If you need to share logins between multiple CakePHP projects, you will need to copy the
app/config/core.php file to each application. The Security.cipherSeed and Security.salt values
within the core.php file are used to encrypt the password text entered by users of the applications.
