In Usage Engine, you can be an admin of an account and have the possibility to manage other users of that account and view their activity log. To be an administrator, you must either be the one who created that account or be added as an Admin by an existing admin of that account. When a user is given access to an account, they become a Member of that account and receive an email with information about the account they were added to and the permission type assigned to them for that account. There are three permission types that can be assigned to a member: Admin, User, and Guest. The permission type assigned to you determines your access rights within Cloud Edition. For more information, see Permission Types.

You can view which accounts you are a member of by clicking the active account drop-down menu on the top bar and you can select which account you want to enter. The Admin option on the sidebar is enabled only if you have been added with the Admin permission type for that account.

Permission Types

You can be added as a member to an account, by an Admin for the relevant account. When members are added to an account, they receive an email with information about the account they were added to and the permission type that has been assigned.

  • Add/Manage members of an account

The Guest permission type has limited access to Usage Engine. The Guest can view almost all aspects of Usage Engine, member management excluded.
