Data Hub Roles and Permissions

How Roles Work in Data Hub

Every user in Data Hub has a role, and a user’s role determines what actions they are authorized to perform. A user’s role is specific to an Organization (Org) and Site. For example, I could have the role of Site User for Org A, but the role of Org Admin for Org B. The roles in Data Hub are very simple and follow this pattern:

Admin vs User Roles

In general, a “user” role means the user can only manage things they create, such as analytics. However an admin can manage all analytics, and even update an analytic created by someone else. Administrators can also manage Data Hub configurations such as integrations.

Site vs Org Roles

In general, a “site” role applies to a single site, for example a Site Admin only gives that user admin rights to that specific site. However an Org Admin has admin rights for all sites in the org.
