User Types And Permissions

We have 5 different user types for your DAM (Data Asset Management).

  1. Super Admin
  2. Admin User
  3. Contributor
  4. General Plus User
  5. General User

Each type of users has a certain permission/authorities on the system. This guide will discuss the user access to admin rights like the ability to upload, delete, create users, add attributes, edit themes and other admin capabilities. This table will give you an overview and comparison of how each User type can access your DAM.
