Overview

The User Management system allows for easy management of multiple users, networks and network groups.

User Management Components

The User Management system can be broken down into the following components:

  • Accounts
  • Users
  • Network Groups
  • Networks

Accounts

Accounts contain network groups and networks. Users can own or be linked to one or more accounts.

Users

Users are linked to an email address when they are created. A user can only have one email address, and an email address can only be associated with one user. Users can own or be linked to multiple accounts. Users can be assigned account roles that give them varying levels of access to the account and its networks. For more information on managing users, see the article "Managing Users in the User Management System".

Network Groups

Network Groups are containers for multiple networks within an account. Every network must be in a network group.

Networks

A network contains all settings and devices for a network. 

Account Roles

Each user is assigned an account role, which determines what actions the user can take on the networks and network groups the user is granted access to.

The following table summarizes the general capabilities of each account role. Note that an Account Owner is considered an Account Admin, with the additional ability to completely delete the account.

Network Permissions

You can limit a user's access to specific networks and network groups by setting their permissions. The capabilities granted by the user's account role applies to all the networks and network groups they are permitted to access. For more information on setting which networks users can access, see the article "Managing Users in the User Management System".

Account Admins are automatically granted access to all Networks and Network Groups.

Linking Accounts

For more information on linking accounts see the article "Linking Multiple Accounts in the User Management System".
