User Permissions

The basic user permission policy is as follows:

  • Admin - Can perform any action, including those involving user access.
  • Regular - Can add, remove, or change any product service.
  • Read-Only - Can view all services and download documents and invoices, but cannot make any changes.
  • Support - Can perform troubleshooting actions, but cannot perform any action that has a financial impact (creating, upgrading, or deleting services) or view any financial information such as billing accounts.
  • Sales - This group is only available in the Partners portal. Has read-only permissions except on the Quoting page, where they can create and manage customer quotes..

Prior to August 2021, a user could be in multiple groups. For these users, the lowest-level permissions apply. For example, if a user is in the Read-Only group and the Admin group, they will have Read-Only permissions.

With recent releases, a user can only be in one group at a time. If you edit the groups of a legacy user who is in multiple groups, you will only be able to select one group.
