Manage Console user permissions

Organisations, apps and user roles within Console.

You can assign user permissions within apps. Within each app, users can be assigned one of five roles. Each app has its own client_id and a pair of GBP and EUR merchant accounts.

Apps belong to organisations. When a new user signs up to Console and creates an app, Console also creates an organisation, which initially only contains that app. This user has the Owner role in the organisation. The Owner can then start to invite other users to join the app, or multiple apps, within the organisation. To join a particular organisation when you first sign up, have your preferred owner first create an account and then send email invites to the other members.

When signed into the organisation, the Owner can create more apps, which become part of the organisation. The owner can manage user roles across all apps in the organisation they own.

A diagram that shows how each organisation can contain multiple apps, which each contain a variety of user roles.

Each organisation can contain multiple apps, and each app can have multiple users with various roles.

Users can have different roles in different apps. These roles determine a user's permissions and access.

Users can be a member of multiple organisations. If they are, they can switch organisation through the dropdown menu in the top-right corner of Console.
