Keepit has several types of user roles, each of which has a different set of permissions. Users can perform the actions of their roles only on connectors they have access to.

Important: All connectors that were created before the release of Keepit Q1 2020 are available to all existing users unless access is restricted. All new connectors are only accessible to certain user roles until access is granted to other users. Click here for a step-by-step guide on how to manage access.

The Master Administrator is the only user role who has the ability to create new users.

Here's a matrix of available user roles and what permissions are available for each one: 

When creating a new user, the Master Administrator will see a list of all permissions available for each role. To learn more about each permission, the Master Administrator can hover over the permission name to open a tooltip with an explanation.
