Permissions in the VIP Dashboard are controlled by an access control list in our public API.
Assigning different roles allows you to manage access to your site. We have two types of permission roles we check for: App Roles and Org Roles. A list of specific permissions for both App Roles and Org Roles can be found below.
There are three supported App Roles, in order of fewest privileges to most: read, write, and admin. App role permissions are based on GitHub permissions when you first sign into the VIP Dashboard.
Each user can have different App Roles for each organization they belong to.
|Read||User has Read permissions on a GitHub repository|
|Write||User has Write permissions on a GitHub repository|
|Admin||User has Admin permissions on a GitHub repository|
There are three supported Org Roles, in order of fewest privileges to most: viewer, member, and admin.
- User is granted this permission for all organizations that the user has App Roles for. For example, user has write App Role for app 2302, so user also has viewer Org role for the Organization of app 2302, which is Organization ID 285
- Intended for users that need to see more information than basic organization data, but do not necessarily need admin privileges, such as business users for your organization
- Inherits all viewer permissions
- User is an Owner of the GitHub Organization
- Inherits all viewer and member permissions
Users can have different levels of App roles and Org Roles (e.g., a write App role and a viewer Org role).
*If your organization currently has no users with the Org Admin role, and are unable to view certain features such as the organization’s Usage Plan Details, please contact VIP.
