- Defining user roles in Alumio
- Adding users to the Alumio environment
The Users section allows you to manage access rights to your Alumio environment and add different user roles.
Note, that users can be created and maintained by navigating to Settings → Users.
In your Alumio environment, you are able to select three user roles: Administrator, Editor and Viewer. Let’s briefly examine the main differences in the definition and permissions according to each user role.
- The Administrator role allows you to manage the Alumio environment and perform all actions that the environment suggests, starting with adding other users and ending with working on different configurations. No restrictions are applied to this role.
- The Editor role makes you able to work directly with configurations, storage, filesystems, settings and so on. This role suggests adding, editing, deleting and running processes within the Alumio environment. However, the Editor role is prevented to add other users to their environment, that’s why Editors can’t view Settings > Users menu. That’s the main difference between the Administrator and Editor roles.
- The Viewer role represents the user who is granted to view and run processes within the Alumio environment. The Viewer is also able to export data and configurations, copy URLs, and set up a transformer tester. On the other side, Viewer is limited to having any permissions regarding creating, adding, editing, deleting and making duplicate actions.
- Once you are at Alumio UI, go to Settings → Users
- Click “+” to add a new user, write their email, and choose a role of a user or an administrator.
