    To perform any action within Springboard, you must have access to the application or setting. This access is controlled by permissions.

    Springboard consolidates sets of permissions into roles. Springboard has two types of roles: workspace roles and application roles. These roles give users varying levels of access to Springboard’s applications and settings. A user can have different roles from application to application but can only have one workspace role.

    Workspace roles

    Workspace roles provide users with a set of permissions that let them view and manage all Springboard applications.

    Workspace owners

    Workspace owners have full access to every application in Springboard. They can also invite and remove users from Springboard.

    Because Springboard lets you set user roles for each application, you should limit the number of users who are workspace owners.

    Only workspace owners can perform the following tasks:

    • Create and delete an application

    • Invite and remove users from Springboard

    • Add and remove roles from any user

    You may have multiple workspace owners in Springboard. Contact support if all your workspace owners no longer have access to Springboard.

    Workspace members

    Workspace members are Springboard users who are not workspace owners. By default, workspace members have no access to any applications.

    Workspace owners must set members' roles for each application. As a result, workspace members may have different levels of access to different applications.

    Workspace owners can set roles in each application for workspace members. With the proper role, workspace members may manage or view an application. Alternately, they may have no access to the application at all.

    Application roles

    Application roles provide users with a set of permissions that let them view and manage a specific Springboard application. Workspace owners can assign application roles to users.

    Workspace owners are app admins for all applications.

    App admin

    By default, workspace members have no access to any applications. Workspace owners can add users to applications as app admins to edit and manage certain applications without having full administrative access across Springboard.

    App admins can perform the following tasks in an application:

    • Edit all parts of that application

    • Add, edit, and delete data sources

    • Edit the settings, including the values for using the Springboard embeds

    App viewer

    App viewers can view an application, its data sources, and its usage dashboard. They cannot edit the application in any way, such as adding data sources or users to the application.

    App viewers can access the application on the Applications page.

    No access

    If a user’s role for an application is No Access, the user cannot view or edit the application. The application does not display on the Applications Manager screen.


    The following table summarizes a user’s roles and permissions within Springboard.

    The permissions for workspace members are set for each application.
