Permissions for meta sites & apps

Administration

Needed permissions: owner or manage

If you’re going to use meta sites & apps in your team, you will have to assign permissions for accounts with a user level. Permissions for meta sites & apps are independent from permissions for sites & apps, so you need to set them separately.

In this article, we’ll explain how to grant permissions to users and groups, and what types of permissions you can use.

Types of permissions

Every meta site & app has four types of permissions: manage, edit, view, and no access. You will set them only for accounts with a user level because the owner level has access to everything.

  • Manage: The user can view meta site settings, assign permissions for users, view and edit dashboards, view all reports, edit custom reports, export a report, view, and edit segments.
  • Edit: The user can view and edit dashboards, view all reports, edit custom reports, export a report, view, and edit segments.
  • View: The user can view dashboards, all reports, segments, and export a report.
  • No access: The user doesn’t have access to anything.

Grant meta sites & apps permissions to users

For every user level of an account, an owner needs to give permissions to use each meta site & app. 

To assign meta site & app permissions to users, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Administration.
  2. Navigate to Meta sites & apps.
  3. Select the meta site & app for which you want to grant permissions.
  4. Click Permissions and choose an option for a user.

If you have more meta sites & apps and users, assign permissions for each meta site and each user. Otherwise, your teammates will stay with no access, at all.

Grant meta sites & apps permissions to a user group

If you’re using groups to manage permissions for your team, you can grant permissions to meta sites & apps for this group. Only an owner can grant meta site permissions for the group.

To assign meta sites & apps permissions to the group, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Administration.
  2. Navigate to Meta sites & apps.
  3. Select the meta site & app for which you want to grant permissions.
  4. Click Permissions and choose an option for a group.
