Website Permissions

If you’re going to use Piwik PRO in your team, you will have to create an account for each teammate and assign website permissions for accounts with a user level.

Account levels

Each Piwik PRO account has two levels of access available for customers: Owner and User.

The difference between Owner and User is:

  • Owner is the primary contact for the account and can perform all actions in the account, including adding a website, inviting other users to join, assigning a user level, and granting permissions for a website.
  • User can do only specific actions, depending on the type of permission they have for each website. By default, every new User has no access to anything.

Types of permissions

Every website has five types of permissions: Manage, Edit & Publish, 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 and edit websites, view, edit, and publish tags, import and export audiences, manage permissions, and use Consent Manager. But they can’t add a website or a new user.
  • Edit & Publish: The user can do the same actions as on the Manage level, except they can’t manage permissions.
  • Edit: The user can view and edit websites, view and edit tags, import and export audiences and change general options. But they can’t publish a tag, manage permissions, and use Consent Manager.
  • View: The User can view websites, tags, and export audiences.
  • No access: The User doesn’t have access to anything.

Grant website permissions to users

For every user level of an account, an owner needs to give permissions to use each website.

To assign permissions to users, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Administration.
  2. Select a website for which you want to grant permissions.
  3. Click Permissions and choose an option for a user.

If you have many websites and users, assign permissions for each website and each user. Otherwise, your teammates will stay with no access, at all.
