A user with an Org guest role can have one of three App roles assigned to them on a per-application basis (in order of fewest privileges to most): read, write, and admin.
This makes it possible for a user to have an App admin role for one application, an App read role for another, and no role (or access) at all for other applications in the organization.

Assign an App role
Only users with an Org admin role can invite, remove, and manage user access levels for other users in the VIP Dashboard.
If an organization currently has no users with the Org admin role, and existing users are unable to view certain features such as the organization’s Usage Plan Details, contact VIP Support for assistance.
When the “Guest” Org role is selected for a user in the “Permissions” panel, an “Applications” field will appear below “Permissions“.
A user’s access level for viewing and interacting with individual applications within the VIP Dashboard is determined by the permission levels set by a user’s App role.
To set a user’s App role for each application:
- Select the label “No applications selected >” to view a list of all applications that belong to the organization.
- A user’s current App role setting is displayed in the label to the right of each listed application.
Applications labeled “None” are not accessible to the user.
- Modify a user’s App role setting by clicking on the label and selecting either Read, Write, or Admin from the dropdown.
- Confirm the settings by selecting the “Set Permissions” button at the bottom right of the panel, or cancel the settings by selecting the “Back” button.
