User Management

How do I manage users?

User types

There are two types of users in the Lyve Cloud service:

Account users—Users who are responsible for creating and managing projects/subscriptions, as well as managing billing in the Lyve Management Portal.

Console users—Users who can perform various actions in the Lyve Cloud console based on the assigned role in the console.

You can be an account user or a console user, or you can be both.

Account users

Each account user is assigned one of the following roles in the Lyve Management Portal:

Master account admin—The master account admin is the account owner, responsible for all Lyve Service billing and payments and adhering to the site and product terms and conditions. They hold permissions to create and manage projects and subscriptions, as well as view and manage billing.

Sub user—The sub user manages individual Lyve Service projects and subscriptions under the master account, and is responsible for monitoring usage, billing by project/subscription, and product user requests.

Product end user—Designated primarily only for Lyve Mobile Data Transfer and Lyve Mobile Import users. End users are in-field operators managing the data transit workflows of their Lyve Mobile devices. They have the ability to add additional product end users to projects if needed.

Only master users and sub users can create and view projects/subscriptions. Product end users cannot.

Console users

Each console user is assigned one of the following roles in the Lyve Cloud console:

Administrator—An administrator can perform all the operations in the Lyve Cloud console.

Storage administrator—The storage administrator can manage all storage-related actions that includes managing buckets, permissions, and service accounts in the Lyve Cloud console.

Auditor—An auditor has read-only access to the Lyve Cloud console, and thus cannot perform any actions.
