User Permissions on Organizations and Projects

Roles categorize users and define what permissions those users have in the Embrace dashboard, such as what projects they can read or what settings they can modify.

1. Organization Roles

To configure roles for your organization:

  1. Navigate to your Settings page.
  2. Click on the Users & Teams tab on the left hand navigation bar.
  3. On this page you can add, remove, and edit user roles & teams.

Adding New Users

  • New users are added as members by default
  • Only Admins can change the roles of users

Admin Role

Users have full control over all organization settings, full access to all projects, and full edit access to user & team permissions.

Examples of what the Admin can configure:

  • Jira integration
  • Webhook
  • Single Sign-On

Member Role

Users have default access to different projects within Embrace, depending on the individual settings for the projects.

2. Teams

Embrace teams allow groups of users to organize their project permissions as a group. Only Org Admins can create new teams. Click on the Teams tab on the top of the Users & Teams page to edit teams.

3. Project Permissions

Depending on how to organize your Embrace dashboard, projects are either a collection of different apps or the same app across different environments

Each project in Embrace can be configured to allow certain access to a subset of your users within your organization.

To configure roles for your projects:

  1. Navigate to your Settings page.
  2. Click on the project you would like to configure on the left hand navigation.
  3. Click on the “Project Permissions” tab on the top of the page.

Assigning Access to Individual Users and Teams

Users and teams can be added to projects individually with a given access level.

Full Access

Users with full access to a project can configure permissions for all users of that project and configure all settings for that project.


Users with regular access to a project will have access to all the data sent to Embrace but will have limited controls over changing the permissions of the project.

Configure Project Default Access Level

Projects can also be configured to allow default access for all org members for a given project. These are the configurable access levels.

  • Regular: All members have regular access
  • Restricted: Only specified users & teams have access to the project
