What is a Role

Roles are based on several factors, including authorization, responsibility, and job experience. Companies can designate whether a user is an administrator, a specialist, or an operation level user. In addition, access to company resources, such as distributions and payments can be limited to specific responsibilities such as the ability to create, view, list, update, or delete files.

MerlinCDN Workspace ecosystem comes with a selection of pre-defined roles that are explained below.

Administrator: The role that has create, update, delete, view, list permissions on all resources.

Accountant: The role that is designated for accounting. This role has required permissions to view payments & balance, make payments, and manage billing settings.

Cache Purger: The role that can only perform purge cache actions and is allowed to view and list distributions by default.  

Read-Only user: The role that is limited to view and list with no write to create, update or delete permissions.

Custom: You can also create custom roles if the default roles don't meet the specific needs of your organization. While setting custom permissions, if there are additional permissions required, system automatically checks them so you do not have to figure out complex relations to manage your roles/users.


Details about the roles and permissions can be seen below on the table.
