Managing Users

by Jake Peters

In your HelpDocs dashboard you can easily assign different roles to different users.

Available Roles

RolePermissions
OwnerThe Owner role is automatically assigned to the creator of the account. This role can do everything, including manage billing. Owners can't be deleted, but we can transfer ownership if you need us too.
AdministratorUsers with an Administrator role can do everything too. They can manage HelpDocs settings, billing, branding, and add/remove users and API keys. They can also edit all articles and content.
EditorAn Editor can see stats and manage content, but can't edit any settings or branding.
Read-OnlyUsers with this role can only view content. This is usually paired with the Restrict to Logged In Users auth option.
