need to create acl file in one of your custom module and logged in as super admin and select roles for the respective user

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Acl/etc/acl.xsd">
            <resource id="Magento_Backend::admin">
                <resource id="Magento_Ui::exportToCsv" title="Export To CSV" sortOrder="11" />
                <resource id="Magento_Ui::exportToXml" title="Export To XML" sortOrder="12" />
                <resource id="Magento_Swatches::iframe" title="Swatch Upload Images" sortOrder="13" />


above code will give permission for export csv , xml and also uploading image for swatch attributes
