In August, we introduced the ability for a customer to access multiple accounts in the ID Manager using the same email address and password. Now that customers are using this feature, the time is right to introduce user roles in the ID Manager. We are starting with two roles: Account Editors, who could be considered “normal users” and Account Managers, who are in charge of administering the account.
Members assigned to the Account Editor role can create projects, purchase and edit Digimarc IDs, including processing image and audio files. Members assigned to the Account Manager role have all of the permissions of Account Editors, but also can enter billing information, add or remove account members and change account settings. FYI – there can be more than one Account Manager per account.
To make it easy to assign and manage user roles in your account, we’ve added a new item to the ‘My Account’ menu. Choose ‘Account Members’ to add or remove account members and assign them roles.
If you create a new account, you will automatically be assigned the Account Manager role. All users who had an existing account before today have been assigned the Account Manager role also. If you invite someone to join your account, they will automatically be assigned the Account Editor role.
We tried to make managing user roles as easy as possible, but if any of this is confusing, please use the ‘Need Help?’ form to send us any questions you may have.
