2.2 User Roles and Permissions

Each user in the organization will have a defined Role and different Permissions per project. See a detailed explanation of the roles and permissions in the tables below.

  • Roles: define the user actions in the organization, i.e., management of the organization account and the creation of and access to projects. The four different roles are described in the Table 2.1 below. You can assign roles when users are invited to the organization (see section 4.1 ) and edit them afterwards from the organization account (see section 4.3 ).
