Sisense licenses three categories of roles:
Admin: Administrators can access the Admin page of Sisense from where they can manage all system configuration, data sources, ElastiCubes, users, user groups and more. Sisense supports multiple Administrators.Note:
Sys.Admin is a special type of Administrator who installs Sisense on your system. There is only one Sys.Admin per account.
Data Admin: Data Administrators can manage all data sources in the system. They have access to the Admin page of the Sisense where they can only manage ElastiCubes and live connections. Data Administrators can also add and manage servers. This is useful for migrating Sisense across environments. Data Administrators do not have access to User Management and System Configuration.
- Data Designer: Data Designers can create and edit ElastiCubes they created or were shared with them. Data Designers can access the Admin page of the Sisense where they can manage the ElastiCubes and live Connections they have access to in the Data Sources page. In addition, Data Designers can see servers, but can not add new servers. Data Designers do not have access to User Management and System Configuration.
- Designer: Designers can create, design, edit and share dashboards. Sisense Designers determine whether the user with who they share a dashboard has editing rights (is a Designer) or only viewing rights (Viewer).
- Viewer: Viewers can view, explore, drill down, make selections and filter the dashboards that Designers share with them. They cannot create new dashboards or edit existing ones.
This roles can be customized through the Sisense REST API. For more information, see Customizing User Roles.
