Roles are custom-defined by the admin, there are no default roles or default role definition.

Depending on how you installed, certain tools or guides recommend using _member_ as the default role to define "membership" within a project.

However, by default Horizon expects the default role to be Member, so one can either update (usually in /etc/openstack_dashboard) to change the OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_DEFAULT_ROLE to be "_member_", or create a "Member" role in Keystone for use in Horizon.

In themselves though, role names do not have any meaning. Hope this helps.
