Managing User Roles

Whenever someone is added to an Organization within Airkit, they are assigned a role, each of which comes with its own privileges and limitations. Each person working within an Organization should only be given a single role.

In increasing order of capabilities, these roles are Agent, Developer, and Admin. The document covers the permissions associated with each of these roles.

Agents

The Agent role is the most limited role within Airkit. It is primarily given to teammates who need access to data gathered by Airkit applications, but who will not, themselves, be building apps of any kind.

Agents have permission to:

  • Access Portals and Console reports
  • Read data in Portals
  • Edit data in Portals if configured
  • Console - My Account

Agents do not have permission to:

  • Invite other users to the Organization
  • Change the roles of existing users
  • Access any part of the Studio
  • Add or modify Resources through the Console
  • Publish applications

Developers

The Developer role is given to teammates who will be using Airkit primarily for app creation. It grants permission to access the Studio and all other tools required for app creation, but not to make any changes to the Organization itself.

Developers have permission to:

  • Access Portals and console reports
  • See a list of all apps built within the organization in question
  • Access the Studio
  • Add or modify Resources through the Console
  • Publish applications
  • Custom roles should be used to determine environment specific access/restrictions

Developers do not have permission to:

  • Invite other users to the organization
  • Change the roles of existing users

Admin

The Admin role (previously referred to as the "Owner" role) provides access to everything the Developer role does, in addition to giving permission to make edits to both the Organization and the users. It is possible for a single organization to have multiple Admins, and each organization must have at least one.

Admins have permission to:

  • Access Portals and console reports
  • See a list of all apps built within the organization in question
  • Access the Studio
  • Add or modify Resources through the Console
  • Access all Environments
  • Publish applications
  • Invite other users to the organization
  • Change the roles of existing users
