User Management

Role-Based Access Control

Gremlin provides role-based access control functionality that grants specific permissions to a role and then a role, or many roles, to each user. Any action taken in the Gremlin UI or API requires a role that grants a user permission for that action. Permissions cannot be assigned independently of roles.

Roles

Roles are split into two categories, company and team roles.

Team roles grant permissions to a user, specifically for work within that team. The team roles control which actions the user can take on behalf of the team, like starting an attack on that team's clients, or revoking that team's API key.

Permissions for work outside of a team are granted using company level roles. Company level roles control actions a user can take on behalf of the company, like changing single sign on settings, creating a new team, or removing a user from the company.

To view or edit users and roles, go to your company settings
